Senior Citizen Self Revitalization Manual and Guide. A Community Approach.
Branscum, S. Y.
This manual details a program designed to facilitate the self-revitalization of senior citizens at the community level utilizing community resources. Discussed in the first three chapters of the guide are the background and theoretical premise, structure and organization, and the results of the Work Again Project, a senior citizen retraining and job placement project that served as the prototype for the project outlined in the manual. Next, guidelines are set forth for assessing community needs and resources, for developing strategies for recruitment and project promotion, for making work and volunteer placements, and for providing training and educational opportunities to senior citizens. Examined next are the self-concept changes that occurred in the senior citizens participating in the project, as measured during the job placement phase of the project. Concluding the guide is a section of related materials that contains a bibliography, a listing of programs for senior citizens, and abstracts for the Work Again Project final report for 1981 and 1982.
