The specific purpose of interviewing in an information and referral (I & R) Center is to obtain whatever information is necessary about the person's problems in order to link him to the community provision most relevant to it. Chapter 1 in this manual discusses what is involved in interviewing and information-giving in an I & R Center. What takes place in an interview is covered in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 discusses record keeping. If records are properly kept, the basic I & R service can provide important statistical information about the kinds of problems older people have, the extent of their occurrence, plus valuable information about the ability of the community to meet these needs. Appended to this manual are: suggested reading, personal record card and tally sheet. (Other manuals in this series are available as LI 003187-003189 and LI 003191 through LI 003195). (Author/NH)
