Report on Education for Older Citizens.
Hendrickson, Andrew; Aker, George F.
This second of three institutes for developing and improving educational programs for older persons was composed of 45 administrators, teachers, and counselors from universities, community colleges, and public school systems. Addresses presented were: "Aging--The Need for a Choice" by Dr. Thomas Rich; "The Physiology of Aging" by Dr. Fred B. Thigpen; "Psychology in Aging" by Dr. Neil Coppinger; "Second Career Planning for Older Adults" by Dr. Irving L. Webber; "Counseling Older Adults and Using Community Resources" by Mrs. Margaret E. Miller; "Learning and the Older Adult" by Dr. George F. Aker; and "Financial Support and Provision of Facilities" by a panel composed of Harold Kastner, James Fling, Myrtle Burnett, and Chalmers Murray. Three resource documents are included in the proceedings: "Some Issues Concerning Education for the Aging"; "Suggested Educational Activities for Older Citizens"; and "Survey of Community--Senior Citizen Information and Needs." A sample of a form used by the attendees to evaluate the institute and a summary of these evaluations are given. Among attendee suggestions are: that the next institute be held near a dynamic program; that people from out-of-state be invited; that presentations include nutrition and theological implications of aging; and that nursing-home administrators be invited to attend.
