Despite the well-documented benefits of physical activity, including reduced risk of chronic disease, healthier weight, reduced stress, improved brain health, and higher energy levels, it can be difficult to convince older adults to add more physical activity to their lives. Research shows that starting with low-intensity activities, offering social support, and building positive attitudes toward physical activity are all effective in encouraging older adults to move.
Join Active Living Partners as we discuss these and other proven methods for increasing physical activity in our next webinar, "Best Practices: Helping Older Adults Get Moving". This free hour-long webinar, scheduled for Thursday, March 24 at 2:00 pm Eastern (1:00 pm Central), will offer practical tips and techniques for helping older adults improve their health by making physical activity part of their daily routine. The webinar will be conducted by a round table of program directors who have successfully implemented physical activity programs for older adults in their communities.
