Adaptations of Homemaking Skills for the Aged: Nutritional Needs. Teacher's Manual and Participant's Manual.
Pestle, Ruth E.; Wilcox, Catherine F.
This manual is designed for use with adults or secondary school home economics students to help them become more aware of: (1) the nutritional needs of the aged; (2) the physical and social limitations affecting aged homemakers; and (3) the adaptations in individual dietary habits that will meet nutritional needs. The special nutritional needs of the aged are presented in a self-instructional, programed learning format with pre- and post-tests. The learning activities and information sheets focus on identifying the nutritional needs of older adults as well as the foods best suited for an older person. The appendices contain a glossary, facilitator instructions, sample worksheets for duplicating the materials, and a reference list. (Author/KMF)
