The Wiltshire and Swindon Senior Games
Almost a third of adults over 65 in Wiltshire are not active enough, taking part in less than 30 minutes per week. High rates of inactivity among the older population can increase the risk of falls, breast cancer, Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline.
The Senior Games will promote active living, wellbeing, and quality of life among older people, making every movement count, with a fun and friendly festival at the end of the 12 week project It has the long term aim of reducing avoidable hospital admissions by contributing to active ageing, and enabling individuals to live independently for as long as they are able to. The Senior Games 2023 Programme follows the success of the Virtual Senior Games in 2020 which gained coverage in both the Daily Mail and Daily Express newspapers.
