Gerontologist, v29 n3 p401-04 Jun 1989
Developed program to provide beds in private homes for homeless, impaired elderly, giving clients 24-hour care for 2 to 4 weeks while permanent housing arrangements were made. Compared to traditional programs for homeless, emergency program saved money and provided more positive social support. Clients were significantly less likely to be institutionalized 1 year later than were comparable nonparticipants. (Author/NB)
