The Aged in a Catholic Home: A Study of the Facilities and Services of the Mary Manning Walsh Home, New York City, January 1952- May 1953
Background of the Study. Since the time of the foundation of the Community of Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm twenty-three years ago, twenty homes for the aged have been established, and the care administered has progressed in accordance with advances in the institutional care of the aged. With the exception of one home, St. Patrick’s Home for the Aged, Bronx, the history of none of these homes has been committed to writing although the events have been worthy of record. The latest and best-known home is the Mary Manning Walsh Home, Manhattan, which is noted as being one of the most modern facilities for the aged, and one in which an organized program was set up in a very short space of time. A study of the establishment of this home and its facilities and services is considered worthwhile at this time because, although the home is in its infancy in regard to length of time it has been operating, it has grown to maturity in development of its program.
