Many adults aged 65 and over spend, on average, 10 hours or more each day sitting or lying down, making them the most sedentary age group. As people are getting older, it becomes even more important to remain active in order to stay healthy and maintain the independence. If they do not stay active, all the things they have been doing and taken for granted may start to become that little bit harder.
Older adults are paying a high price for their inactivity, with higher rates of falls, obesity, heart disease and early death compared with the general population. If someone wants to stay pain-free, reduce the risk of mental illness, and be able to go out and stay independent well into old age, they're advised to keep moving.
There's also strong evidence that people who are active have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression and dementia. Recent evidence suggests that regular exercise can reduce the risk of falling in older adults. [source: NHS]
