Summary

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide resource material from which a local training program for visiting homemakers can be developed. The visiting homemaker assists in performing the duties of the home in order to keep family life normal during stress or illness in the family. The visiting homemaker trainee should be an intelligent, mature person with an interest in helping families and with experience in basic homemaking skills. The teacher should be a college graduate with a major in home economics or social work, experienced in teaching adults, and competent in working with others. Instruction from 60 to 90 hours is suggested in the units -- (1) orientation and personal qualities needed, (2) responsibilities of the visiting homemaker, (3) basic needs of people and implications of working with children of various ages and family backgrounds, (4) working with families with special problems, (5) assisting the family in providing nutritious meals, and (6) housekeeping tasks. References are included with each unit. Suggestions are given for lesson planning, evaluation, and teaching facilities. Criteria are listed for judging trainee readiness for employment.
