Workshop on Program Development For Training Homemaker-Home Health Aides. Final Report.
Meyer, Marie P.
Thirty-nine selected participants representing 21 states and Puerto Rico and including directors and consultants in homemaker-home health aide agencies and vocational-technical home economics educators participated in the 2-week workshop in July 1968 at Rutgers University. The objectives were to develop plans to improve and expand programs to train homemaker-home health aides and to demonstrate ability in using the resource guide, "Homemaker-Home Health Aides--Training Manual." Approximately half the time was devoted to methodology, field trips, and group dynamics appropriate to reinforcing learning experiences related to the content of the training guide. Each participant submitted a projected plan for interagency cooperation and coordination in exploring community needs and existing programs as a basis for initiating and/or expanding homemaker-home health aide services and training programs. Conclusions drawn from follow-up and evaluation indicate that the greatest progress as a result of the workshop was initiation of inter- and intra-agency dialogue and contacts. Among appendixes are summaries of formal presentations, copies of evaluation instruments, outlines of projected plans of participants, and a listing of references and resource materials. (JK)
