Community Service Program in Foster Home Management and Creative Arts.

A training program for prospective foster home operators and volunteer workers with creative arts was held in the fall of 1968 and again in the spring of 1969 under the joint sponsorship of the Program in Gerontology of the University of Rhode Island, the Cooperative Extension Service, and the Rhode Island Medical Center. The foster homes under consideration were those for adults, primarily for elderly persons who are ambulatory and relatively self-sufficient but who require some supervision. Topics covered included the health and mental problems of the elderly, standards for public assistance and medicare, nursing techniques, feeding the elderly, creative arts as therapy, and various special needs and problems.
