Stay Active and Independent Longer (SAIL)

The new Stay Active and Independent for Longer (S.A.I.L) project is a physical activity initiative aimed at providing adults (50+) living within South Derbyshire the opportunity to become more physically active, improve mental wellbeing, remain independent for longer, meet new people and explore new groups. As we get older, it is important to stay active and lead a healthy lifestyle. The Chief Medical Officer recommends that older adults should be doing 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week, be active on a daily basis, and should do activity which improves muscle strength on at least 2 days per week. Taking part in physical activity can:

• Maintain independence

• Reduce the risk of falling

• Delay the onset of dementia

• Increase mobility and flexibility

• Improve mood and increase self-esteem

• Help you to meet new people and stay sociable
