Summary:
Annotation on back: Health Care Caroline Rest; Description: 300 Folder 17 #6385 Stamped Hiram Myers In "The 89th Annual Report of the A.I.C.P. 1931-1932," precedes page 25, first numbered page of report. On page facing picture: A New Point of View Caroline Rest at Hartsdale, N.Y., affords an opportunity for convalescent care in a country environment - and something more. Here mothers with new-born babies and small children may regain their strength away from the crowded tenements; may rest and renew their courage to face again the deprivation and anxiety that unemployment has brought into their lives. Teaching the mothers the physical care and habit training of their children is an important part of the service. A limited number of pregnant women are accepted for prenatal care where there is special need. 5l6 mothers with 537 children under two years of age and 441 children two and over were entertained during 1931-1932.
