Activities for Older Adults
Exercise is good for you; it's just a matter of making it a priority and a habit in your daily life. In the aging population, exercise has been shown to prevent disease, lower the risk of falls, improve mental health and well-being, strengthen social ties, and improve cognitive function.
Regardless of your age, we hope this will motivate you to incorporate exercise into your life.
