Abstract Resident and staff education programs were an integral part of an ecological audiologic rehabilitation program which was carried out over a 12-month period in a home for the aged. Education focused on empowering communication participants through recognition of communication problems and development of the skills needed to overcome them. A client-centred approach was used, allowing tailoring of the program to individual needs.

Les programmes d'éducation des bénéficiaires et du personnel faisaient partie intégrante d'un programme de <> qui a duré 12 mois dans un foyer pour personnes âgées. L'éducation avait pour objet de faciliter la communication chez les participants en définissant les problèmes de communication et en développant les aptitudes nécessaires pour les surmonter. La méthode employée étant centrée sur la clientèle, elle permettait d'adapter le programme aux besoins de chacun.
