A Social Study of Cardinal Hayes Convalescent Home for Children, Millbrook, New York, 1941–1920
The increasing Interest in the problem of convalescent care within the past few years, the improvement in its quality of services and the changing concept of the principles of convalescent care seem to make this present study appropriate. It would seem important at this point to conduct a study on Cardinal Hayes Convalescent Home since the institution has been operating for nearly ten years, and in all this time little data has been formulated in writing. While great interest is being shown toward convalescent care, the principles of convalescence, are still new and undeveloped. An institution which has been functioning since 1941, and which has been set up to give sufficient help to young convalescents of New York seems deserving of study. The patients are referred from the different hospitals in Manhattan, Bronx and Brooklyn. Cardinal Hayes Home works conjointly with the hospitals for the benefit of their little patients yet maintains its own identity.
