Relocation of Institutionalized Elderly.
Nirenberg, Ted D.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v51 n5 p693-701 Oct 1983
Assessed the effects of relocation on 40 institutionalized elderly and examined two treatment programs. Results indicated that, following relocation, low-functioning subjects exhibited an increase in passive-withdrawn behaviors while high-functioning subjects increased in active-outgoing behavior. The behavioral-skills program led to favorable postrelocation changes, however, the cognitive-skills program did not. (LLL)
