( Quoddy Tides Photo) Train Homemakers to Help Families in Washington County The Human Relations Service of the Diocese of Portland in collaboration with the Maine State Department of Health and Welfare, has announced the opening of the Washington County Homemaker Ser- vices' Office in Calais. The Homemaker, employed and trained by this agency, is sent into a home, upon the request of the family, to help out in a number of situa- tions - a mother's sudden absence due to hospitalization or her convalescence at home, or the father having to stay home from work to care for the small children. The services of a Trained Homemaker could help avoid placement of the children out of the home at such an emotionally critical time, and enable the father to con- tinue working. An elderly person or cou- ple, with the daily help of a Trained Home- maker for a few hours, might be able to remain in their own home and avoid being placed in a nursing home or institution. A young mother, whose deprived back- ground has not prepared her adequately for the responsibilities of child care or home care, can benefit from the teaching skills of the Trained Homemaker. For example, the Homemaker can teach a young mother how to prepare attractive and nutritious meals from food obtained through Donated Commodities. The Washington County Homemaker Services, located at 22"Calais Avenue, Calais, will begin its two week training program in early January. There will be -':" seminars, lectures, and films on a variety of subjects pertinent to the responsibilities of the Homemaker. These subjects will include Food Nutrition and Meals; the Child in the Family; the I11, Disabled and Aging Adult; Mental Health and Mental Illness; Personal Care arid Rehabilitation Services; Home Accident Prevention; Family Spending and Budgeting; and Care and Maintenance of the Home and Person- al Belongings. Following the Pre-Service Training Program there will be an In-Service Train- ing Program whereby training will continue on a monthly basis. Along with this group training approach, each Trained Home- maker will receive individualized super- vision on each of their assignments. This program will be under the direction of Sister Marie Troy S.N.D., an area super- visor of the Maine State Department of Health and Welfare. Sister Troy earned her Master of Science Degree in Home Economics at Simmons College in Boston. Her undergraduate work was done at Em- manual College in Boston, where she earn- ed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature. She will be supervising the work of ten full-time or an equivalent number of part-time Home-makers who will be placed in homes throughout Washington County. The Washington County Homemaker Services will provide Trained Homemakers to the area at the completion of the training program the latter part of January, 1971. The Program Director of the Diocesart Homemaker Services is Thomas J. Hagerty ACWS. This agency will be the fourth direct service agency of the diocese to be- come involved in Homemakers. Holy Innocent Child Home Care Services in Portland began its homemaker operations in February, 1968. The District V Office of the Human Relations Services in Cari- bou began its Homemaker Program in March, 1970, as did the Human Relations Services Office in Biddeford. Since Feb- mary, 1968 to the end of November, 1970, the Diocesan Homemaker Program has provided services to over 842 families involving more than 1,845 children.
