Maintaining Good Health in Late Life. A Training Manual Developed for the N.C. Governor's Coordinating Council on Aging.
Benson, Lawrence P.
This training manual for personnel who work with older adults is designed to create awareness and knowledge of health maintenance for older Americans. Increasing awareness of the health needs of the aging, and fostering understanding of biological, psychological, and sociological aging processes, and of positive attitudes toward health care and protection of the aged, are covered in the initial sessions. An awareness of housing problems, how these problems affect health maintenance, the relationships between environmental safety and leisure activity with health maintenance, and geriatric nutrition needs are also stressed. Finally, an understanding of the older person's view of death is fostered. Step-by-step instructions for procedures and objectives are included. A list of materials needed for each session is also included, along with a resource directory for obtaining films which are recommended for use in several sessions. (Author/MBR)
