The Dr. Sher Home, like other agencies in our society, has always depended on volunteers of different kinds, some who commit themselves financially, others who commit valuable time, and a great many who freely give of their special skills and talents. If we look closely, we will see that almost anything that really matters to us, anything that embodies our deepest commitment to the way human life should be lived and cared for, depends on some form of voiunteerism. Each of us need only inventory the Dr. Sher Home to appreciate the emptiness in individual lives which would result were voluntary organizations and services to cease. As a result of the dedicated efforts of many individuals you have before you an opportunity to ensure a better life not only for many of our elderly throughout the community but for all of you in the present and in the future. For too many, old age has become a genuine tragedy. We have shaped a society which is extremely harsh to live in when one is old. Before reaching old age, many of you here tonight may suffer depression, boredom, or anger living out your noisy or quiet lives in a desperation marked by disillusionment and obsolescence of your work and your skills. As the middle aged of our society you will bear the heaviest personal and social responsibilities since you are being called upon to help support — individually and collectively — both ends of the life cycle; the nurture and education of the young, and the financial, emotional and physical care of the aging. Frequently, these obligations trap people in their careers or lifestyles until children are grown or parents no longer become their responsibilities. Tbe. middle aged of all classes are Inclined to be ambivalent toward the young and the elderly since both age groups remind them of their own waning youth. In addition, they feel obsolescence as they see their elders aging and feel the pressure of youth pushing iU way towards their position in society. In each succeeding decade the proportion of elderly to young in the population Increases and our community and society is ill prepared for the Increased survival of large numbers of them. It Is Incumbent upon us to develop other efficient and effective services for the elderly while at the same time assuring the maintenance and stability of choices currently needed In existing programs and services. When we talk about the elderly each of us in talking about bis or her own future. We must ask ourselves If we are willing to settle for mere survival when so much more is possible, -r - V -•__ For all too long a time the elderly have had to wait for services essential to survival and a decent life style. Services of all kinds for the elderly Including preventive, supportive, and protective are fragmented, limited, discriminatory, inaccessible or the ultimate nightmare—are non-existent. The key word Is "wait". Walt to get medical services, wait to obtain home care, wait to receive financial support. The complications unfolding In public policy, toward the aged suggest that our house dare not be divided, and if we are to have a contract and an obligation with other generations in our com-
