This report in English translation is intended to acquaint agencies and individuals in this country with the homemaker services of other nations. The home helper is an international phenomenon and her role is developing, and the free exchange of workers signals a growing harmony in the concepts of training, and mutual recognition of qualifications in the various countries. For these reasons the United States through the National Council for Homemaker Services participates in the International Council on Home Health Services. Approximately 350 delegates of 16 countries attended the International Congress. Papers included in the document are: (1) "The Home Helper and the Changes in the Family and Household Work" by M. Pierre Laroque, (2) "The Medical Importance of the Home Helper" by J.A. Gillet, (3) "The Multiple Aspects and Specialized Training of the Home Helper" by Carmen Jonas, (4) "The Importance of Training for Home Helpers" by Margareta Nordstrom, and (5) "The Place of the Home Helper in Social Services" by Dr. Pense. The document also includes a general report of work group discussions and brief summaries of reports presented by home help organizations in 13 countries. (JK)
