Physical activity recommendations for older Australians

For the first time, the Australian Government has developed physical activity recommendations specifically for older Australians. The new recommendations apply to older people across all levels of health and ability, be they living at home or in an aged care home. Older Australians are urged to accumulate at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day, as a slight increase in activity can make a difference to a person’s overall health and wellbeing.
