Overview

"What do I do to make physical activity fun, and how can I keep exercise program participants enthusiastic?" These are common questions among activity directors and program administrators who work with older adults. Now there are some ready answers in Active Older Adults: Ideas for Action.

This excellent manual provides a collection of 15 award-winning fitness programs for older adults. The ideas and activities, which have been gathered from programs across the country, are presented in a consistent and easy-to-understand format. Directions for implementing the programming ideas are included, as are sample charts, brochures, registration and safety forms, newsletters, and a listing of resources that will ensure a successful program.

The book presents a full spectrum of approaches to helping older adults get and stay fit. Some of the programs provide introductions to basic fitness principles while others explain how to lead older adults in specific activities, such as strength training, line dancing, and water walking. There are also low-stress programs for individuals with cardiovascular or joint problems.

A common thread woven through all of these winning fitness programs is the issue of social support. The book makes it clear to program leaders that the support and encouragement of peers is vital to the success of participants.

Active Older Adults is the only resource activity directors and program administrators will need to start a successful exercise program for seniors. It's filled with programming ideas and lots of helpful resources.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert Topp, PhD, RN (Medical College of Ohio School of Nursing)
Description: This manual provides examples of previously developed activity programs for older adults, as well as an extensive list of resources including publications, associations, vendors, and experts in the field of exercise programming for older adults.
Purpose: The purpose is to bring together a collection of fitness programming ideas for the older adult. The editor claims the manual will help solve the dilemma of many activity directors who work with this population. The editor and contributors do a good job of presenting ideas for fitness programs, but they do not address other critical issues in program development, including needs assessment and evaluation.
Audience: This book is written for practitioners who are interested in developing fitness programs for older adults. The editor appears to be a credible authority in this area as evidenced by experience in developing such programs.
Features: The manual is divided into two sections. Section I presents examples of various activity programs that have been previously developed for older adults in the U.S. The second section is a listing of older adult activity resources. These resources include fitness-related organizations, individuals with expertise in the area of senior fitness, and printed materials. The manual omits a generic plan for senior activity program development. Such a generic plan might include documenting the need for a program, developing a program with a budget, and formative and summative evaluations.
Assessment: This is one of the few publications in the field which has attempted to document and describe previously developed activity programs for older adults along with resources for developing such programs. However, there is no critique of these programs provided, nor is there an outline of how to select an appropriate program or evaluate a program's effectiveness.
