Survival Strategies of Older Homeless Men.
Cohen, Carl I.; And Others
Gerontologist, v28 n1 p58-65 Feb 1988
Examined how 281 homeless men aged 50 and older living on skid row were able to procure basic necessities such as money, food, shelter, and health care. Found men had and used informal supports to survive. Inability to fulfill needs was primarily associated with physical health, depression, lack of contacts with institutions and agencies, and stress.
