Gottesman, Leonard E.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v32 n3 p229-45 1991
Conducted two-year mental health intervention with older adults in six residential care facilities. Findings showed little intervention impact but revealed that residents treated were generally socially marginal with weak ego skills, rather that significantly mentally ill. Suggests more intensive program that restructures facility's milieu to offer planned normal life demands and that models structured programs like milieu treatment. (Author/NB)
