Determining the Learning Needs of the Older Adult in a Rural Community: Perceptions of the Service Provider.
Nelson, Gordon K.
Adult Education, v33 n2 p97-105 Win 1983
Two-hundred and seventy-five service providers in a rural location with a high concentration of older people (age 60+) were queried about types of needs, obstacles to learning, and program development. While instrumental needs are generally recognized, need perception is based on occupational orientation, though age and number of contact hours are not. (Author/SSH)
