Exercise for Older People Videos 

The National Ageing Research Institute provides a set of six free online videos that can help older people stay active at home. 

Australian guidelines recommend older people do 30 minutes of physical activity every day for strength, flexibility, fitness, and balance.  It is also good for your mental health.  The exercises were developed by allied health professionals with expertise in exercise for older people.
