Summary

The Director of Homemaker Service at the Children's Aid Society relates the process by which paraprofessional homemakers are prepared through inservice training and continuing supervision by the professional staff. Because the homemakers' backgrounds range from five years of grammar school to some experience in college, the training program must be geared to reach everyone regardless of educational background or native abilities. Inservice training is given in two ways: through monthly training sessions given by the director of the service and through supervision by social workers on individual cases. Although the major emphasis of the homemakers is on the care of the children, care of the home, home management, planning of meals, and food preparation are not ignored. The homemaker's relationship with the professional social work staff and with the family she serves are discussed as critical areas in the successful operation of the total delivery service. (CS)
