There are now approximately 1 billion people above the age of 65 in the world, and it’s expected to double by 2050. Many of these people will have health challenges.
Physical inactivity is often the cause of many age-related disorders, more than age itself. This is especially challenging with regards to the 50 million people diagnosed with dementia, and the 10 million who get diagnosed with this disorder every year.
How do we battle inactivity among seniors in our current environment? What are the keys to gain ground, even in the wake of COVID-19?
Thousands of seniors in care facilities around the world are improving their health through physical activity, reminiscence, and social connectedness.
Join this webinar to explore how collaboration across sectors and organisations is crucial to successfully turn the vision of healthy ageing into reality.
Learn from key stakeholders how national strategies aim to set directions for physical activity and ageing well into the future.
Learn how a leading public health specialist sees self-care as the most important form of care and aims to get physical activity on prescription across England.
