Improving Attitudes toward Elderly People: Evaluation of an Intervention Program for Adolescents.
Dooley, Stephen; Frankel, B. Gail
Canadian Journal on Aging, v9 n4 p400-09 Win 1990
In an experimental evaluation of a "friendly visitor" type of program in which adolescents visited senior citizens, it was found that general attitudes toward elderly people improved following weekly contact with specific elderly persons. Two outcomes of these programs were found: the provision of service to the elderly and the change of negative attitudes toward the elderly. (Author/JOW)
