Many of us are young at heart, aren’t we? To help us stay active and able, we need to care for ourselves in a different way as our body changes.

As our bodies change, different exercises can help to keep us strong and steady later on. The Find Your Active ‘Able like Mabel’ resources, are a series of movements to do whilst at home and to introduce during your normal daily routine. Regardless of your age, these simple movements will support you in completing every day jobs, and help keep you steady, strong and able – all with the aim to ensure you can enjoy your life now, and in your years to come.

Be able like Mabel whilst making a cuppa, or perhaps strong like Ron whilst doing the dishes! Find the support you need to ensure you can stay healthier, strong and active for longer.
