Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project was to create an aqua aerobics informational brochure for three low- income housing facilities located in Long Beach. The brochure included an explanation of the benefits and values of an aqua aerobics program for older adults. Additionally, it included a schedule of aqua aerobics programs in the Long Beach area, as well as pricing and transportation options if any, between the low-income housing facilities and the pool facilities. The aqua aerobics program will take place in a pool setting accessible to older adults living in these facilities. The objectives of this directed project were to: (a) summarize current research about the benefits of aqua aerobics for older adults for inclusion in the informational brochure, (b) identify aqua aerobics programs in the Long Beach area that can accommodate older adults residing in a low-income housing facility and, (c) create an informational brochure for the service coordinator or manager of three low-income housing facilities to include costs, benefits of exercise, benefits of aqua aerobics, and contact information including location of pool facilities.
