Foster Home Care for Mental Patients: By Hester B. Crutcher. New York: The Commonwealth Fund, 1944. 197 pp.

Review by:
R. G.

The careful selection of suitable patients from psychopathic hospitals for supervised living in community homes is the subject of this book. This plan of family care is gradually gaining acceptance in this country with substantial evidence of therapeutic value to the patients. The first family care for the mentally sick began as a religious observance in the middle ages in Gheel, Belgium, where it has in modern times been organized as a government program.

Miss Crutcher has covered all aspects of her subject in a well-written and interesting book.
