Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1980 
90 p. 

Based on the collaborative efforts of six New York postsecondary institutions and several social agencies, this manual provides guidelines for institutions wishing to develop and implement a program to extend continuing education to the elderly homebound. An introductory section describes the Elderly Homebound Project, upon which many of the suggestions and examples provided in the guidebook were based. This project trained older adults as learning companions, that is, persons who attend non-credit college courses and share the knowledge they gain with homebound elderly persons between the weekly course sessions. The manual provides suggestions as well as samples of flyers, correspondence, forms, advance television schedules, and other documents useful in replicating this program. Its 14 sections cover: (1) purpose of the manual; (2) educational philosophy; (3) goals and objectives; (4) steps in getting started; (5) recruiting homebound elderly and learning companions; (6) staffing needs and personnel, including advisory committee members' responsibilities; (7) curriculum and instructional methods, including the use of television; (8) teacher training; (9) scheduling staff meetings; (10) one-year budget; (11) development of a series of forms to facilitate information flow; (12) problems that the Institute of Study for Older Adults at New York City Community College encountered and solved; (13) program evaluation; and (14) conclusions.
