Providing opportunities for seniors to be healthy and independent and promoting the benefits of regular physical activity will support their efforts to lead healthy, active, and productive lives.
Regardless of age, when an individual commits to a healthy, active lifestyle they reduce the likelihood their senior years will be complicated by the chronic diseases and disabilities that may occur if they are inactive.
Increasing the physical activity levels of seniors will greatly enhance efforts underway across the province to ensure Nova Scotia supports the well-being of seniors, a key component of Nova Scotia’s Strategy for Positive Aging.
