Title

The Homemaker Needs of the Rural Frail Elderly from a Client vs. Agency Perspective

Abstract

The clients, aides, and staff of a homemaker services program for the rural frail elderly were individually interviewed concerning client's met and unmet needs. While the overall response from all three groups suggested a highly effective program, significant differences existed among the three groups with regard to what they considered the most important needs, both met and unmet by the program. It was concluded that although the perceptions of all three groups of participants in such programs might differ, such differences may not necessarily work to undermine the program.
