For Caregivers of Older Adults
Are you responsible for the care of an older adult? Caregivers have a unique opportunity to support seniors, and to help them stay active and prevent falls. Explore and share these resources.
While spending more time at home, seniors may develop a routine with less daily physical activity. Staying socially connected and adding more movement into the day can help ensure seniors are healthy and ready to add on more activity when the time comes. This resource was developed in partnership with Parachute Canada. Additional information can be found on their Falls in Seniors webpage.
To help older adults sit less and move more, ParticipACTION has developed a Physical Activity Toolkit for Older Adults! The toolkit includes physical activity guidelines, a walking program, a movement log, articles on the role physical activity plays in prevention and management of chronic disease, plus lots of useful resources to help older adults get moving.
