Get the Guide
This Guide builds on the information presented in Exercise & Physical Activity: Your Everyday Guide from the National Institute on Aging which provides several resources and anecdotes about both how and why to be physically active and exercise, how to track your progress and improvement, and how to be more conscious of your nutritional food and beverage intake, all for the purpose of leading a longer, healthier life. This Guide will provide additional information and guidance for older adults with disability and other chronic and temporary conditions, such as how to modify exercises, additional and adapted opportunities for physical activity and recreation, and
additional considerations to help make smart dietary choices. It also provides additional outside resources on these topics for you to use at your leisure to learn more and strategize around
your health goals.
