Healthwatch: Active Seniors

They are the reason behind 40 per cent of early nursing home placements and the most common cause of injury for elderly people… falling. The problem is, many seniors have a fear of falling and that’s why they stop being active. That lack of mobility then weakens muscles and increases the risk of falls. In this segment of Healthwatch, we meet some active seniors and discover what exercise routines they have added to their lifestyle. One further note: there is a wide variety of exercise programs out there for seniors from walking programs to yoga. Keri Ferguson has the details in this segment of Healthwatch. For more information you can contact the Peterborough County City Health Unit by calling 743-1000 extension 318 or log onto their website at:
