A FUN, AFFORDABLE WAY TO IMPROVE HEALTH AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Over 13 million adults 65 years of age and older will fall this year resulting in over $50 billion in health care costs. The good news is effective health promotion programs can help reduce falls. The bad news, adherence and retention are typically less than 50% because older adults believe exercise programs are painful and not very much fun. To address this problem, Dr. Jason Crandall created Bingocize®, a socially engaging group-based program that combines exercise, health education, and the widely popular game of bingo. Our research team successfully tested Bingocize® and found over 90% of older adults were retained over the course of the 10-week program. PLUS they significantly improved physical, social, and mental health. Bingocize® is delivered live by a trained lay leader either face-to-face or using the Bingocize® web-based app. With critical endorsements from the United States Administration for Community Living and Department of Agriculture, we offer Bingocize® licenses, online training, program materials and equipment, and merchandise to nursing homes, assisted living, senior centers, and hospital trauma centers across the US and the world. In fact, the program is now in communities in over 40 different states!
