A Healthy Old Age: A Sourcebook for Health Promotion with Older Adults.
FallCreek, Stephanie; Mettler, Molly
The purpose of this sourcebook is to provide information about health promotion program planning, activities, and resources to people planning wellness programs for older adults. The materials are divided into two parts: background information and resources. The Wallingford Wellness Project is presented as an example of a comprehensive health promotion program along with the topics in the background information section, i.e., wellness in old age, program development guidelines, changing lifestyles, and learning about health promoting activities. The resources section focuses on the topics of self-care, stress management, nutrition and physical fitness, community resources and support networks, and common health concerns such as alcohol abuse, cancer, arthritis and weight control. In addition, a section entitled "Tips for Facilitators" is provided to help workshop presenters use a participative learning approach in conducting each session. A references section is appended and sample worksheets and handouts are given throughout the document. (JAC)
