Abstract

Objectives: The aims of the study were to describe the prevalence of physical activity in a sample of older adults in home care in Europe and to examine the relationship between physical activity and incident disability.

Conclusions: These findings support the possibility that physical activity has an independent effect on functional autonomy among frail and old people.
