A study was carried out to verify if the larger homes for senior citizens, i.e., those with the larger number of beds, offer complete assistance to their residents. Four aspects were examined: the building proper, its installations and equipments, its technical personnel, and the programming of activities. A majority of these aspects were found satisfactory.
