Abstract:  Through its programs of study, research and action, Development Education in Action (DEA) gives older people an opportunity to study and share with those of other age groups through discussions, films, book reviews and speakers. Members are concerned with social issues in both Canada and the Third World.

"In Our Own Homes" is a slide-tape montage which looks at how and why present day society has isolated many old people in Canada. It stresses the need for older people to continue to be self-determining and contributing to society, and outlines several projects which suggest models for future community planning. As with their first montage, "These Old Ones: Growing Old in China and Canada," discussion guides are included. In addition, members of DEA are available to travel with the slide-tape and conduct discussions, with the aim of assisting community groups in looking at models of service which might be adapted to their own local needs. To this end, more detailed information on innovative projects can be supplied.

28 minute slide-tape montage. Rental: A - $10; B - $20.
