Handle Yourself with Care: An Instructor's Guide for an Accident Prevention Course for Older Americans.
Lewis, Dorothea J.; Winsor, Richard J.
Accidents are the first cause of crippling and, many times, of death, among older people. To help reduce the possibility of accidents among older people, the Administration on Aging and the National Safety Council have joined in preparing this booklet--a course of instruction in safety and accident prevention for Older Americans. It spells out positive methods for averting dangers in sufficient detail to permit its use by volunteer instructors--members of organizations and community agencies--not necessarily previously trained in accident-prevention instruction. Included in this booklet is a list of national and state organizations and agencies to contact for assistance. (Author)
