Maintaining regular physical activity is important regardless of age, but it becomes more valuable to seniors as it has various health benefits. First, being physically active can help prevent many diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, while helping improve the overall immune function of the elderly. Second, regular exercise can improve a senior’s mental health and wellness. Seniors who engage in exercise and remain physically active are at lower risk of developing dementia. Finally, exercise helps improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, which eventually reduces the risk of falls in seniors.
