In-Home Services for the Elderly. A Training Manual Prepared for the N.C. Governor's Coordinating Council on Aging.
Hare, Jane H.
A training program for community agency volunteers involved in providing personal care and assistance to older persons in their homes is outlined in this manual. Twelve sessions are included with suggestions for supplementary sessions in several areas. The first four sessions, which cover the need for home services to the elderly, aspects of the aging process to promote a better understanding of the elderly, techniques of home management and home safety, and the importance of recreational activities, are designed for use by staff persons of councils on aging or similar agencies. The content and suggested methods for these sessions are included. The remaining sessions, concerned with home nursing skills--maintaining health; recognizing illness; personal services for the bed patient; and diets, medicines, and treatments--should be conducted by a qualified home nursing instructor through arrangements with the local Red Cross. All necessary materials for teaching and practice sessions are provided by the Red Cross. (MBR)
