Resident Care Guide. Third Edition.
Woodbridge State School, NJ.
The third edition of the Woodbridge State School Cottage Life Department Resident Care Guide is explained to be a developmental status scale devised in 1969 as part of a 5-year study for the purposes of measuring the entire population's self-help training abilities. The department is said to serve 954 residents; 424 are non-ambulatory and 530 are ambulatory, falling within the severe and profound level of retardation. The care guide scale is said to be screened and planned in order to fit and meet the needs of the retarded. The scale covers the self care skills of feeding, dressing, undressing, bathing, toileting and basic good grooming. A graph records the increases in self care skills in the residents over a 3-year period. Information for each of the 19 cottages is provided, generally including number of females or males, age range, ambulatory or degree of ambulation, number of blind residents, number of brace wearing residents, extent of wheel chair usage, and number of bed cases. The majority of the report consists of charts with the above information. (CB)
