On Site Training for Adult Day Care Program Aides that Meet State Certification Requirements and National Standards.
Medley, Pamilea
This document describes a practicum that was conducted to develop a training program appropriate for adult day care program aides that would meet Oklahoma state certification requirements and national standards. The training curriculum for use in delivering onsite competency-based training to students studying to become adult day care program aides was developed on the basis of information gathered during a review of the literature on existing adult day care programs, models, and approaches and interviews with adult day care providers in Oklahoma. The curriculum and training guide were successfully pilot tested at a licensed Oklahoma day care center. Appendices contain the following: a map detailing Oklahoma's state adult day care service locations; a training survey for inservice adult day care program aides; an application for the program; a training guide for adult day care program aides; and a final version of the preliminary survey post survey. The training guide includes units on the following topics: principles of adult day care; target population; administration and organization; personal care; services; staffing; facility and environmental and safety considerations; and techniques of serving individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Each unit contains some or all of the following: trainer responsible, time estimate, handouts, objectives, and definitions of key words. Contains 23 references. (MN)
