Tribal Aging Programs: A Basic Guide.
National Indian Council on Aging, Albuquerque, NM.
A national training session for administrators of tribal aging programs held by the National Indian Council on Aging in November 1979 was the basis for the training manual. The seven chapter titles reflect workshop topics with the text of each chapter incorporating material presented in the workshops and examples of model programs on reservations. Chapters discuss administering aging programs; providing general information on funding, developing and operating nutrition programs for Indian elders; establishing transportation services on reservations serving the elders; providing "homemaker-home health services" for the elderly, sick or handicapped person (allows person to live at home instead of going to a hospital or institution); and emphasizing the vital and useful role of senior centers for elders and the community. The last three chapters offer procedures in establishing tribal aging programs. Topics include advocacy working to change the system to make it serve the elderly better, approaches to grantsmanship, and sources of funding the Older Americans Act. (ERB)
