Abstract

From the late 1910s to the early 1940s, most caseworkers held such disparaging and stereotypical attitudes toward the elderly as, Old age is a twilight too dim to be of useful service. Sources such as the minutes of the Family Service Association's Conference on Old Age Problems, however, reflect the efforts of a handful of social workers to destroy prejudices and to develop foundations for casework with the elderly.
