Forever…in motion is a health promotion initiative that helps older adults become physically active through volunteer-led physical activity groups.
Check out the Forever in Motion Home Fitness and Leisure Resource Guide with thanks to the Sask Health Authority for sharing. They hope that it gives you some ideas and suggestions of things to do as well as on line resources that can be accessed. A great resource during this time of physical distancing.
Promoting physical activity to the older adult community is a key strategy of Forever…in motion. As our older adult population increases so does the impact on our healthcare system. One of the greatest health risks for older adults is sedentary living (World Health Organization, 1997).
The Forever…in motion Older Adult strategy is to improve and maintain the health of older adults living in the community through support, education, research, partnerships and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. The strategy focuses primarily on individuals living in seniors’ congregate housing and condominiums or those that attend churches, day programs and community association programs.
