Physical activity and community involvement are key factors in healthy aging. Working with The Health Trust, HRA developed "Healthy Steps in Silicon Valley"—an easy-to-read and easy-to-use guide to help people 50 and older become more active in their daily lives.
The guide covers a wide range of physical activities in the home and in the community. It also addresses many other aspects of health, including home safety and fall prevention, stress, and depression. It lists local fitness programs, community services, and health and social resources. We developed the guide with extensive formative and evaluative research with intended users. It uses best practices in health communication and health literacy. It is based on a model that has shown effectiveness in reaching people of all income levels and many ethnicities The guide is in English and Spanish.
