Older Adult Participation in Health Promotion Programs: Perspectives of Facility Administrators
Wright, Tim; Hyner, Gerald C.
Educational Gerontology, v37 n12 p1030-1039 2011
Administrators of older adult-centered facilities must identify barriers to the planning and implementation of health promotion programs. In this qualitative research those barriers were identified through in-depth interviews with administrators of older adult-centered facilities. As identified by administrators, the predominant barriers to the participation of older adults in health promotion programs were scheduling conflicts, physical and mental health issues, a lack of comfort with the health content, and insufficient program information.
