Falling between the cracks: a student experience in providing home care for underserved community residing elders

Journal of Community Health Nursing

Author: Alster, K. B., Keshian, J. C.
Year: 1990
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

Nurses who work in the community are frequently concerned about elderly persons who could benefit from home nursing care, but who are not receiving such care for a variety of reasons. The local Council on Aging of Arlington, MA is interested in assisting the town's elderly residents to avoid having them "falling through the cracks" of the health-care system. The Council collaborates with the College of Nursing of the University of Massachusetts at Boston to provide home nursing support for clients who might otherwise not receive services. As part of a senior-level course in community-mental health nursing, students from the College make home visits to frail elderly individuals.
