Tips to help older adults stay physically active: How supportive environments can help
Elizabeth Ready, PhD
Professor, Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management

Older adults have much to gain from being physically active, yet they face increasing challenges with age (e.g., health issues, safety, transportation).  Healthy aging is enhanced both by building physical and mental capacity, and by seeking environments that support healthy choices.  This presentation will highlight ways that older adults can use physical activity to enhance their capacity. It will also examine how age-friendly communities support and enable people to age actively, and thus help to keep us healthy and fit.
