Abstract:This survey, which is part of the Sencare Study of Needs of the Aged, conducted by the Department of Community Health at the University of Stellenbosch, was undertaken to assess the degree to which institutions concerned with the care of the aged in the northern suburbs of the Cape Peninsula conform with the policy of the South African government that the frail aged should be institutionalized, because of the concentration of the necessary and specialized services. A general finding of the survey was that overall care is good, but that too many healthy white elderly persons live in residential institutions, compared with colored elderly persons. Bibliogr.
