Abstract

The reactions of 26 hospitalized male veterans to individual attendance at a single Kiwanis Club luncheon meeting are evaluated. Each patient was interviewed informally immediately upon return and again exactly one month later. “Although each patient reacted differently, the experience was pleasant and meaningful to nearly all.” Early enthusiasm waned over time but personalized aspects of the experience tended to remain.
