Bingocize®


Bingocize® is a successful preventative health promotion program designed to increase the physical fitness, health knowledge, and social engagement of older adults in a variety of settings including independent living, assisted living, and long-term care facilities. Bingocize® has proved to be an effective, enjoyable, and easily replicated way to improve physical activity adherence and ultimately health- related quality of life in the older adults.

The Bingocize® program meets the highest- level criteria for evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion programs as established by the Administration on Aging Evidence-Based Programs Review Committee. The Health Communities Institute also recognized it as an evidence-based practice. Since 2011, our team has successfully implemented the program at 12 additional assisted living and independent living facilities in Bowling Green and Owensboro, Kentucky. Subsequently, older adult facilities from across the country and as far away as Australia contacted us to learn more about the program. Over 25 facilities across the United States have implemented the program. We have been especially successful training administrators and volunteers in 48 counties by partnering with Kentucky Area Development Districts.
