Deinstitutionalizing Elderly Patients: A Program of Resocialization
Siegel, Barry; Lasker, Judith
Gerontologist, 18, 3, 293-9, Jun 78
In a program of deinstitutionalization 61 elderly state hospital patients were successfully placed outside the institution. Changes in definition of the patients' situation, collective approach to resocialization, careful medical evaluation, and familiarity of patients with possible alternatives help reduce patients' commitment to the institution and enhance chances of successful placement.
