Independent living > Health & wellbeing services

Health & wellbeing are key to independent living for elderly people. Many support and care services promote healthy physical and emotional well-being, by providing services such as exercise & fitness classes, including chair based exercise, aerobics and Tai Chi. As well as improving physical health and well-being, these activities promote social and psychological well-being because they are group activities. A good balanced diet can improve the health of older people, and dietary advice can easily be obtained from a number of sources. Keeping warm in winter is important for older people to avoid problems especially if they have a chronic disease or disability, and risks of heart attacks increase if the body temperature drops. Leisure activities improve feelings of well-being, and many services offer concessionary prices for use of leisure facilities.
