The Aging--Served by and Serving as Subprofessionals.
Hiland, John E.
Representatives from all parts of the United States attended a conference designed to: (1) explore ways and means of involving older persons--primarily welfare recipients--as employees, (2) delineate the wide variety of tasks that have been and can be undertaken by older persons, (3) determine the kinds of recruitment, selection, training, supportive education, and supervision that will be needed by older persons, (4) define potential approaches for job classification, description of duties, and career models with Civil Service and Merit systems, and (5) assess major administrative problems regarding program development. Presentations included: (1) "Training and Use of Subprofessional Staff and Volunteers" by Charles R. Cohen, (2) "A Systems Approach to Job Design and Manpower Utilization" by Wretha Wiley, (3) "An Overview of Service Roles For the Aged: Experiences of Older Persons" by Harold L. Sheppard and Jack Ossofsky, and (4) "Sources and Potentials for Funding" by Eunice O. Shatz. Also included in this document are seven workshop reports. (Author/JS)
