Cooperative Services for the Rural Frail Elderly.
Neely, Margery A.; And Others
These three papers describe a cooperative outreach program designed to counsel older rural residents about available community services through use of a door-to-door information effort. The packaging and delivery of the training conference for the outreach workers involved in the outreach project are described in the paper highlighting the work of the American Personnel and Guidance Association Division of Continuing Education. Responsibilities of the various participants, including the local community, the university community, and the Area Agency on Aging, are also outlined. Although geographically specific, these materials suggest a model for outreach services to the elderly. (JAC)
