Eval11 Session 396: A Logic model framework for evaluation of a multi-site caregiver training program 

10-31-2011 13:13

The Home Caregiver Training Project was funded in 2009 for a three year period at four Regional Centers on Aging in the state of Arkansas for the purpose of training caregivers for elderly in their homes. The project replicated an already existing training program called Schmieding Home Caregiver Training Program in Northwest Arkansas. The evaluation plan used the Logic Model framework and was designed to facilitate judgments regarding the merit, value, and impact of the program, guide successful replication, and collect evidence to justify the funding of additional training programs at four other locations. Evaluation of the program at four sites over multiple years has been challenging. Lessons are learned from implementation of the program and evaluation of the quality of training. The value and impact of the program on communities, caregivers, and elderly who hire trained caregivers present new challenges for evaluation.
