Not another survey : a look at issues in assessing the community needs of the aging
This guideline for needs assessment is part of the 1977-78 follow-up of Area Aging Training Projects by the University of Missouri Social Work Extension Program. Consultation regarding the feasibility of the needs assessment of older persons is available upon request from the Extension Program, School of Social Work, University of Missouri-Columbia. Professionals there also can suggest sources for technical consultation for implementing the assessment. TA grant from the Missouri Office of Aging made this project possible. Full responsibility for these contents are accepted by the writer. However, consultation and critical reviews generously were furnished by: Dwight Rieman, Associate Professor, Social Work Extension Program, University of Missouri-Columbia. Meg Yoak, community development specialist, University of Missouri Extension Center, Jefferson City. Jean Leonatti, Assistant Director, Central Missouri Area Agency on Aging, Columbia. Ellen H. Biddle, Center for Aging Studies, College of Public and Community Services, University of Missouri-Columbia. Their thoughtful suggestions are deeply appreciated.
