These guidelines have been drafted to assist the work of those in the position to promote physical activity and well being with all older people. They do not provide exercise recommendations relating to specific diseases and conditions associated with ageing or on exercise prescriptions for individuals. Sources of such recommendations are included in the appendices to this document and included in the revised Active for Later life Resource.
In particular the Guidelines highlight:
1. Current guidance on appropriate physical activity recommendations for the older person; and
2. Guidance on translating evidence on promoting physical activity with older people into practice.
