Abstract

In 1972, at the request of the manager of a welfare hotel in Greenwich Village, two occupational therapists from St. Vincent's Hospital began conducting a part-time activity program in the hotel. The tenants consisted of 140 middle-aged and elderly men, mostly discharged state hospital patients, alcoholics, addicts, and ex-offenders. The occupational therapists hoped to improve conditions at the hotel by meeting some of the social and recreational needs of the men and by helping them improve their self-image. They describe the program, the obstacles encountered in its development, and its accomplishments.
