Homemaker Health Aide Service: Training Manual.
Administration on Aging (DHEW), Washington, DC.; Homemaker Service of the National Capital Area, Inc., Washington, DC.
TRaining women for homemaker service is an important function of every agency that provides such services. The Homemaker Service of the National Capital Area, Inc. designed a training manual to be used with either a single new employee or with a group as large as 15. Informal discussions, lectures, practice, and demonstration are methods of teaching used. Supplementary aids that have proved helpful include films, case histories, and problem setting questions. The manual provides knowledge that will be needed by the homemaker in 10 sections: an introduction to homemaker services; goals; role of the homemaker and types of services; working with troubled people; the homemaker and families with children; the homemaker and the sick and disabled; the homemaker and mental health; the homemaker--nutrition and home management; agency policy and procedures; and agency forms and related materials.
