Health Promotion and Exercise for Older Adults is a practical tool for the rehabilitation specialist who would like to plan a health promotion program for older adults. The goal of this course is to teach the rehabilitation professional how to begin, teach, and follow-up on a community based exercise program for older adults. The manual is divided into three sections: Part I, “Getting Started”; Part II, “Classes”; and Part III, “Special Considerations, Program Evaluation, and Follow-Up.” Each of these sections contains easy to follow recommendations for planning, implementing, and conducting program evaluation on an older adult health promotion program. Part II, “Classes”, contains 27 concise chapters which are each on a different class topic. All of these chapters include a lecture/discussion for each class, specific exercises for each class, and a handout to give class participants for each class. This home study course is presented in a style and with terminology that can be directly used in all facets of a health promotion program for older adults.
