Older People


We’re all now spending a lot more time at home and that means it’s getting harder to keep active. We have put together some ideas and tips  help you get active at home, if well enough. And if you’ve found a great way to get active online, use the hashtag #StayInWorkOut on social media to share with others.

As we get older, it is important to stay active and lead a healthy lifestyle.

The Chief Medical Officers recommend that older people should be doing 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week, being active on a daily basis, and should do activity which improves muscle strength on at least 2 days per week. Taking part in physical activity can:

  • Maintain independence
  • Reduce the risk of falling
  • Delay the onset of dementia
  • Increase mobility and flexibility
  • Improve mood and increase self-esteem
  • Help to meet new people and stay sociable!

If you haven’t been active for a long time it is recommended to increase your activity levels gradually.
