Long Term Care Aide/Homemaker. Resource Handbook.
This handbook provides basic information for preparing individuals to work as long-term care aides and homemakers. It is written both for college students in long-term care aide/homemaker programs and for individuals already employed in these occupations. Health care agencies giving orientation training for new employees and inservice training for experienced staff may use this as a resource book for their employees. Four sections cover communication skills and personal work skills, growth and development of the individual and family, the employment field, and caring for clients. Exercises dealing with the information presented appear throughout the four sections. An appendix offers information on first aid for emergencies. Other contents include a glossary and answer key for the exercises. (YLB)
