Abstract

[Extract] Dear Editor,
The demand for residential aged care (RAC) placement will more than treble by 2050 1. With population ageing, an Australian adult who is currently 65 years of age has a greater than 20 projected years of life expectancy. When coupled with the increased prevalence and number of complex health‐care conditions, it is reported that the impending need for care nationally will dramatically increase. Consequently, the Australian health‐care system may need to adopt more innovative, evidence‐based approaches to offset the high level of sedentary behaviour, disability and poor health in many of our older people, especially those residing in RAC.
