New Folks' Home

Story, first published: Analog Science Fact + Science Fiction, July 1963

Simak's aliens, out of kindness and thoughtfulness and maybe self-protection, seem genuinely involved in finding solutions for human problems. In "New Folks Home" ..., aliens even go so far as to provide a place where the elderly can still be of service to the galaxy.
