Replay 2017 A1


Older Adults Replay 2017 Session A1: Health Promotion: Focused Recreational Therapy Strategies for Older Adults


OVERVIEW: Betsy Kemeny, Ph.D., CTRS - All older adults from diverse situations, including those aging with developmental disabilities and multiple chronic conditions, should receive health promotion opportunities through recreational therapy. “I Can Do It” is a national health promotion program funded through the President’s Council for Fitness Sports and Nutrition. At SRU, programs served older adults from 6-10 weeks to target individuals who needed more support than typically offered at the local senior center, nursing home residents with chronic mental health issues, and older adults with developmental disabilities living in group homes. The I Can Do It model is a promising practice that is replicable in other communities. University-community partnerships can both serve both older adults from diverse populations and the learning needs of students. This session will explore the evidence supporting the I Can Do It health promotion program, the funding, implementation, and evaluation of the program.
