Abstract

This article describes the development of an enrichment program to promote social support, coping with aging, and enhancing self-care in a sample of African American older adults living independently in low-income public housing. To address the needs of the increasing population of older adults in the United States, health initiatives that foster independence, wellness, and self-care are essential.
