Homemaker-Home Health Aide Program. A Challenge to Vocational Education. A Modified Competency Based Pilot Training Program.
Holton, Hazel S.
This curriculum guide is designed to be used by vocational educators in planning, developing, coordinating, and implementing homemaker-health aide programs. It is divided into three parts. Covered first are various aspects of program planning, including planning and organization, the role of the adult educator and the adult learner, and methodology and techniques effective with the adult learner. Seven competency-based instructional units are provided on the following topics: personal care; nutrition, meal planning, food preparation, and food service; housekeeping, sanitation, and safety; maternal, infant, child, and geriatric care; patient care; first aid and emergency procedures; and orientation to community agencies, needs, and services. Included in each unit are an introduction, a duty statement, a performance objective, a criterion-referenced measure, a performance guide, suggested learning activities, and suggested references and resources. The final information concerns program publicity, recruitment, follow-up, and evaluation. A seven-page bibliography concludes the guide. (MN)
