Keeping Active in Residential Elderly (KARE) project

HUR & the KARE project were mentioned in BBC West
Midlands showing the benefits of HUR’s line that
is specifically designed to help the active ageing population stay

training is crucial for balance, independence and mobility”, Prof. Anna
Whittaker.

Here is an insight to the “Keeping Active in Residential Elderly
(KARE)”-study, which is being conducted by the Physical Activity and
Nutritional Influences In Ageing (PANINI) project research group at the
University of Birmingham.
