Battles in Tenement Homes WHEN SICKNESS CAUSES POVERTY. Sickness is a constant menace to the eco? nomic independence of the lower grade wage earners. The most obvious way. of course. * the misery and destitution which it caui to prevent the sickness. But until large preventive measure*, STC more universally brought to bear on the dis? eases that break down the working efficiency of so large a part of our population there is need for us to follow the example of the Good Samaritan in relieving the suffering, binding up the wounds and supplying to those who lie bruised and broken by the I th? RMSM by which they shall be restored to efficiency and health. We must, therefore, secure for the needy sick the best medical treatment eithe: at home or in hospitals, relieve their physical needs, give appropriate "after care" and instruct in wise hygienic methods to prevent a recurrence of the illness. "Will you call today on a family living at No. ? East ? Street. The father is se: ill and the family is in need of fo< This was one of the calls for help that came to us last January. When the nurse first called the man was suffering from an illness that could not effec? tively be treated in the home. He had worked steadily at his job until pain and weakness compelled him to stop. He was persuaded to enter a hospits' where he remained for six weeks* treatment The mother, too. was dangerously near a complete physical breakdown through worrv and overwork to provide for the family during her husband's illness. She and the children were, therefore, sent away to the country for three weeks of . and recuperation. On their return a weekly sum was orive:? to the family, and this was continued until the father was able, without danger, to return I his vvork. During the past year the Bureau spenl $30.782.58 in providing relief for 1.552 tat where sickness had temporarily incapacitated the breadwinner. This, however, does not represent the sum total of the Association's expense effort in combating disease and relieving the misery and destitution which follow in its wake. In addition, we gave assi.-tance in 367 other homes where tuberculosis was the ob? vious cause of dependency. Visitors and nurses must constantly go into these homes, directing suspecte?! ? ? regularly to attend the city's tubercul? clinjes, arranging for the removal of incipil cases to sanatoria and urging othets in more advanced stages to go to hospitals. Often the afflicted one is the ofilv or chief breadwinner of the family, and for a time least, the care will equal that required to re? store widows' families. During the past .ear the Bureau spent for relief of this group of 3m7 families $17. "74.16. in addition to caring for families in our Home Hospital.
