To Age Well, Walk!

“…cost-benefit analysis.

The exercise intervention cost about $1,800 per participant per year…including reimbursement for travel to the research centers. But that figure is considerably less than the cost of full-time nursing care after someone becomes physically disabled…hope that the study prompts Medicare to begin covering the costs of group exercise programs for older people.

…the LIFE study is not meant to prompt elderly people to begin solo, unsupervised exercise. Medical supervision is important…Talk with your doctor and try to find an exercise group…adding The social aspect is important.” – http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/05/27/to-age-well-walk/?smid=tw-share
