It is an invaluable resource for improving functional fitness, maintaining aspects of independent living, and enhancing quality of life.
With Exercise for Frail Elders, Second Edition, readers will gain a deeper understanding of 14 medical conditions common to older adults, how these conditions may affect participants’ ability to perform activities of daily living, and what exercises can help them maintain and increase functional fitness.
