Active ageing – how to improve choices and experiences

This is the title of the presentation that Bob Laventure from the BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health will be giving at the conference Getting Older People Physically Active.

This event takes place on 4th November at Chesterfield FC Community Trust, Derbyshire and will be presenting new ways of engaging and retaining older people in sport and physical activity producing psychological, physical and social benefits

Bob Laventure’s presentation will focus on how ctive ageing has arrived and now in the mainstream of physical activity and health promotion. A wide range of providers have expanded their work to meet the needs and interests of a growing and diverse population group. This introductory presentation will ask what can be done to not only improve the choices available to this discerning group, but also to improve the quality of the physical activity experience.

With a background in physical education and health related exercise, Bob Laventure has been working at the BHFNC since 2000, leading work on programme development in relation to older people and physical activity. He is also a Director of Later Life Training and has a particular interest in the areas of translating evidence into practice in physical activity programme design, motivation and behaviour change, people living with dementia and volunteering.
