Shasta College Senior Programs and Services.
Greenleaf, George A.
This document provides an evaluation of the progress Shasta College has made in carrying out task force recommendations for providing services for the older adult population in the college district. Specific actions taken to set up a program for the aging have included the appointment of a college coordinator to institute programs and services relating to the aging, the establishment of an advisory committee, participation of personnel in conferences on the aging, and publicity on the availability of programs on the aging. Programmatic implementation has included: a successful fee workshop on preretirement; development of a new credit course "Introduction to Gerontology (Concepts and Issues Related to aging)"; cooperation with senior citizen associations; the development of tapes to be aired on local radio and television stations on a variety of subjects and themes relating to the older adult. Further directions for the future are suggested, and papers relevant to the development of the "Introduction to Gerontology" course are appended. (NHM)
