AnnotationThe Amish provide a unique model of the ways in which a community can effectively support and sustain its older members. Through integration of faith and lifestyle, the Amish have clearly patterned the ways in which elders seek, obtain, and respond to care. Information derived from five projects over a ten year period form the basis of this interpretation of eldercare among a specific community of Iowa Old Order Amish. (RH).
