Clark Coll., Atlanta, GA.
This document presents reports of three 1983 workshops held at Clark College in Atlanta on the needs of the elderly on the southside of Atlanta. The first workshop focused on the needs of the elderly in the areas of resources, housing and public safety, transportation, support groups and self-help, nutrition, and church involvement. The second workshop focused on the elderly's housing needs in relation to the need for support groups. Topics covered included present and future needs, managers as support group facilitators, ombudsman services, and support groups for independent older adults. The third and final workshop addressed issues in planning and funding self-help support activities. Topics covered included proposal research, census data sources, defining resource needs, and writing the proposal. The document appendices include a partial list of Atlanta support groups, a bibliography on support groups, and listings of program speakers and panelists, Clark College participants, members of the Clark College gerontology program advisory committee, and materials and resources.
