Sports for the young and old


Dear Sir or Madam,

Sport is versatile. Whether it's to improve fitness, for rehabilitation reasons or simply because you enjoy exercise - in any case it's healthy.

The Topic of the Month November will tell you which positive approaches can be pursued through sport, whether as a child or in old age with dementia.

Have a sporty week,
