To stay healthy and maintain independence, seniors need to move and be physically active. Ottawa is encouraging seniors to get moving by distributing a DVD set called Get Moving: Active Sitting Program. The easy to follow 30 minute DVD and user’s guide present physical activity geared to seniors with a low level of physical activity.
