Optimal Well-Being for Senior Adults II – is the second in a series of workbooks consisting of reproducible activity handouts written for mental health professionals to provide guidance and content as they work with the changing needs of senior adults. The activities in the workbook are clear, easy-to-follow handouts that cover a wide range of mental health and life skills issues.

The activities in this workbook are perfect for those working with the older adult population in a variety of settings:

  • Health care settings
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Retirement communities
  • Churches
  • Rehabilitation facilities
  • Community continuing education classes
  • University programs for seniors

Each activity is written with the intent to be adapted, if needed, and then reproduced for an individual or a group. The handouts can be individualized to meet the specific needs of the participants. Creativity is encouraged by both the leader and participants in an ongoing process to generate satisfying and meaningful sessions. The use of artwork, graphics, and different fonts offers interest and variety to enhance focus and attention to the topic at hand.
Each of the ten chapters has five handouts with three levels of understanding. This format encourages the facilitator to choose which level is most appropriate for the specific individuals to be served and avoid frustration of both the facilitator and group members.

All assessments and worksheets in this workbook are fully reproducible for your convenience.  This workbook is spiral bound to facilitate making copies of the various activities and handouts.
