An evaluation of a gerontological training program for nursing assistants.

Abstract

A gerontological training program for nursing assistants has been developed by the New England Gerontology Academy to (1) improve the quality of care delivered to the institutionalized elderly, and (2) provide training and assistance on a gerontology career ladder to displaced homemakers, AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) recipients, unemployed immigrants, and other disadvantaged groups. The program successfully produced a cadre of committed paraprofessionals but was not suited for those whose removal from the labor market had been long-term.
