Housing for the Elderly. A Training Manual.
McCullough, James S.
This manual, designed for use in training staffs of local agencies which counsel elderly clients on housing problems, is organized into five sessions dealing with the social and economic factors of finding adequate physical shelter. Sessions deal with acquainting participants with the most critical issues in housing for the elderly; developing and applying a checklist of important locational factors in elderly housing; acquaintance with the hidden costs of different housing types; introduction to the process of providing housing counseling services; and acquaintance with relocation problems for the elderly. Each session includes a list of objectives, materials, and handouts. All sessions are extensively outlined illustrating the specific procedure and the time it should take to accomplish each objective. Readings are included for copying and use as handouts in several of the sessions. (Author/MBR)
