Fewer than 30 per cent of people aged over 60 will have been physically active for even a 10-minute period in the last four weeks. At the same time, almost 60 per cent of Bristol’s adult population is overweight and we spend £7.65 million in the city each year on health treatments for illnesses associated with physical inactivity.
This event will consider how older people can be encouraged to get out and to be active to improve physical and mental wellbeing, reduce social isolation, increase life expectancy and improve quality of life. Come with questions and ideas to share. It is organised and hosted by the Bristol Health Partners Active Older People Health Integration Team (APPHLE HIT).
This event is part of Healthy City Week Bristol 2016.
