Forever…in motion is a health promotion initiative that helps older adults become physically active through volunteer-led physical activity groups. 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.
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).
