Buffer, Loretta C.; Teaff, Richard R.
These proceedings summarize the content and activities of a conference attended by continuing education deans and directors in Ohio's public and private 2- and 4-year institutions of higher education, administrators of nursing homes, and community mental health personnel. Focus is on the major goal of the conference: To examine, with respect to both rationale and means, the extension of educational opportunities to those elderly who congregate in the community, e.g., in recreational centers, retirement housing, and nursing homes. Major sections include a review of conference philosophy, a review of the literature on the conference theme, synopsis of conference proceedings, recommendations and feedback, and a four-page bibliography. An appendix presents guidelines on program planning and proposal writing. (WL)
