Chore Services. Course Outline.
Hallenbeck, Gael A.
This course outline provides local agencies with a guide to be used in North Carolina training programs for chore providers who provide supportive services to aging and disabled persons. Critical training areas as well as suggested training methods and materials are identified. An introduction provided general information on content, instructional methods and materials facilities, costs, low literacy students, course requirements and evaluation, graduation, and further training. The outline for a 20-session, 60-classroom-hour course consists of six basic training units: orientation, nutrition, home management, personal care, aging, and communication. For each unit, the corresponding chore-provider job tasks, performance objectives, and performance measures are identified. The knowledge and/or skill areas needed to perform the job tasks are presented with suggested teaching methods and materials. Appendixes, amounting to two-thirds of the document, include suggested handouts organized by units, an 18-page annotated list of sources for teaching materials and information divided by units, and a two-page course evaluation form.
