Adaptations of Homemaking Skills for the Aged: Housekeeping. Teacher's Manual and Participant's Manual.
Pestle, Ruth E.; Harris, Nancy C.
This manual is designed for use with adult or secondary school home economics students to enhance their awareness of the tasks and physical limitations faced by aged homemakers, and to identify possible adaptations for making the housekeeping task easier and safer for older adults. The five most common physical limitations experienced by the aged are discussed, and the most frequently performed housekeeping tasks are presented in a self-instructional, programed learning format with pre- and post-tests. The learning activities and information sheets focus on analyzing each housekeeping task and providing alternative strategies to facilitate task accomplishment. The appendices contain a glossary, facilitator instructions, sample worksheets for duplicating the materials, and a reference list. (Author/KMF)
