Haberkost, Michael; And Others
Educational Gerontology, v22 n8 p735-45 Dec 1996
Based on a needs assessment survey (66 responses from 101 nursing home activity coordinators), a recreation manual and training program was developed and tested with 25 coordinators/recreation staff. The 14 who completed evaluations increased their understanding of such topics as depression; goals of nursing home recreation programs; motivation of participants; pet, plant, and music therapy; and working with groups.
