The purpose of this thesis project is to write a grant to fund for a Senior Wellness Program (SWP). The proposed program is to assist seniors with limited mobility to maintain independence and quality of life. The purpose of the SWP is to create community-based inter-disciplinary interventions by integrating and incorporating physical exercises, recreational activities, music therapy, and group work to improve physical function, mobility, socialization, and emotional well-being of older adults.
Based on the findings from the literature review, it was apparent that a Senior Wellness Program contributes to the quality of life, improves health, and well-being among older adults. The funding source selected was the Archstone Foundation. The grant writer hopes that this wellness intervention will provide older adults with the tools necessary to lessen their chances for falls, enhance emotional states of well-being, socialization, and maximize their ability to live independently at home.
