Developed and tested by Partners in Care Foundation, Healthy Moves for Aging Well is a National Council on Aging-approved model health program. The program begins with an initial home visit by a trained professional who assesses the individual’s level of readiness, reviews recommended exercises, and helps the individual establish goals. A volunteer motivational coach then contacts the client weekly via telephone to monitor progress and provide support and encouragement. Healthy Moves for Aging Well is:
A 12-week in-home intervention
Designed to enhance the activity level of frail, high-risk sedentary seniors living at home
Designed to assess and improve individual
abilities in three areas-flexibility, strength and endurance.
Offers social support in setting goals and monitoring changes in physical activity in frail adults.
