Most Canadians would agree that a healthy lifestyle consisting of regular physical activity and healthy eating is beneficial to our overall health. This is especially true for older adults. Physical activity and healthy eating can extend our lives, reduce disability and chronic diseases and most importantly improve the quality of our lives.
Many older adults may also feel that it is too late or too hard to inclulde physical activity and healthy eating into their daily lives. AlCOA Manitoba's goal is to help all older adults live an active lifestyle and experience the health benefits, joy and happiness that go along with it.
