Moving more and regular physical activity helps to improve both physical and mental health as well as reverse some effects of chronic disease to keep older people mobile and independent. The risks of developing diabetes, heart disease, obesity, falls, cognitive impairments, osteoporosis and muscular weakness reduces with regular movement. It is also good for your mental health and wellbeing – especially if you can get out and meet people whilst you do it. Group activity is also a great opportunity to meet people and have fun.
