Large poster with 6 black and white illustrations (photographic): Old Age in a New Age: Visiting in the Home. The Red Cross Member arrives at the home of an Old Age Pensioner who looks forward to her weekly visit. When one is old reading is tiring, but this old lady still enjoys her favourite book thanks to the Red Cross. Failing sight makes the completion of forms a tiresome business. This Red Cross Officer is helping with a pension form; later she will collect the Pension. This old lady suffers from Rheumatism and attends a Clinic for treatment. The cheerful company of the Red Cross Members turns the effort into an adventure instead of an ordeal. It is difficult to do your hair when your joints are stiff and the assistance of the Red Cross Visitor in washing and brushing is very welcome. After the visit the Red Cross Visitor reports to her Divisional or Detachment Headquarters on the condition of the Pensioner. Regular reports are forwarded to the Assistance Board Officer. Service Series No. 7 issued from 14, Grosvenor Crescent, SW1. Printed by I. Labworth & Co., Tudor Road, London, E9.
