To the editor: Doctor Brickner and his team deserve congratulations for organizing the program described in the January 1975 issue of the Annals. He is incorrect, however, in his statement on page 5 that other "programs either lack a full range of professional health services, limit their patients to those with particular health problems, or have other restrictions." In addition, on page 6, he claims to be unaware of programs designed to seek out and deliver a full range of professional health services to homebound, socially isolated older people hidden in the community.
For the benefit of Dr. Brickner and
