Abstract

The ageing process often reduces functional ability and this may be linked to psychological changes for the individual. Living within the rest home environment and having a reduced capacity to
participate in independent physical activity means many residents slowly withdraw from physical activity. These changes have a tendency to increase risk of chronic disease and potentially reduce quality of life.
