Theoretical Frameworks

Sense of Community
Individual and Family Wellness
In order to maintain independent living skills, elderly and disabled adults need resources that provide them with a sense of community, and work to meet their individual and family wellness needs.

This is currently accomplished with positive results through religious and social programs, as well as alternative care settings, such as ADHCs.

The Argument:
Major Findings
success of both organizations is dependent on how well the program tends to meet the needs of the client
sense of community
is vital for
individual well-being

Organization Improvement and Take Home Message
need program evaluation

Barusch (2002) tackles the issue by grounding the correlation between health and availability of resources within a historical background. In 1965 the Older American Act was signed into law, which was enacted to enable the elderly to be cared for at their own homes by a caregiver through in-home services and socialization programs.

Interviews of each other
Article Evidence
Nowell and Boyd (2010) laid down groundwork for the understanding of PSOC, and offered a new theoretical framework with which to understand the linkage between responsibility and PSOC.
Article Evidence
Nelson et al (2013) suggest that because there is clear evidence of higher social engagement correlating with physical and cognitive health that interventions should certainly increase levels of social activity amongst the elderly.
