Special Considerations in Providing Long-Term Sheltered Workshop Experiences for Older Disabled Persons

By Irving Barshop

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1965

A demonstration vocational rehabilitation project for older disabled workers, 55 years of age and above, was instituted; it was intended to offer a broad spectrum of services to older disabled clients; to demonstrate the structure, techniques, and design of such a program; and to provide data for evaluating such programs and the contributions that these programs might make to the workers. While such programs have not proven to be a panacea, properly used, they do provide a valuable service. Relevant considerations include need for long-term workshops for some clients; the continuity of work for workers; the provision of part-time work opportunities; the special requirements of counselors for these workers; and the potential for client over-extension.
