Fun activities for older people to stay active

As more time passes us by, we start to feel less energetic and begin to get aches and pains that we never had before. We’re too often told to be more active by those who have all the energy in the world! The problem is, if we don’t stay active everything we enjoy doing on a daily basis can become more difficult because we lose muscle that we don’t use. In our 60s and 70s physical activity and exercise are still important to stay healthy, energetic and independent. 

Doing exercise isn’t all about going to the gym. There are lots of fun activities that we can do to keep active and fit.


Dancing like line dancing, morris dancing and ballroom dancing have great benefits for your heart and it improves coordination as well as balance. It is also a great way to meet up with old friends and even make new ones. 

Mindful exercises 

Exercises like yoga, tai chi, and pilates can be low impact on the body. While you can do these exercises with the help of YouTube videos a DVD or a book or app by yourself you should start off by going to classes a trained instructor. They will be able to show you the correct way to stretch and modify any exercises you might find too uncomfortable to suit you.


Enjoying the fresh air on a bike is superb for the cardiovascular system. It also helps improve your balance and is a great activity for your leg muscles. You can also use an exercise bike if you want to cycle year round. 

Swimming or water aerobics

You might enjoy completing a few laps around the pool but you don’t have to, you can keep fit by attending aqua jogging or water aerobics classes. Swimming is a fun, low impact exercise. 


Golf is the perfect activity for those who want to enjoy the outdoors in a fun way. Golf is also a great way of building endurance, which will make completing everyday tasks easier in the future.


Bowls are a great way to improve muscle strength in the arms, shoulders, and legs. It can also be incredibly beneficial in increasing mental skills, coordination and concentration. 

Whatever you choose to do to keep fit, if you are taking steps to exercise more but have problems getting into your bath consider getting a UDOOR Bathtub door for improved access to your bath.

In our new build apartment we were stuck with a bathtub as it was already fitted to allow a change to accommodate the need for my 97 yr old mother. Alternatives required removing bathtub and replace it with a shower tray or a walk in bathtub. Both expensive options and risking voiding builder's warranty. Then I came upon the U-Door option and I must say it has worked out very well at a relatively less outrageous price. They have been proficient in follow up, their engineer seems very professional and finished the job without any fuss.

We had a udoor fitted in our bath. We were very pleased with the service provided the tradesman who fitted the door was very pleasant and professional we have used it for while now and very pleased with it my wife has been able to shower with no problems.

First rate product & First rate service. For a person with mobility issues like myself it makes being able to shower easy again. Two options completely remodel the bathroom or fit a UDoor. No contest. Quality, Cost and speed of installation Would recommend to anyone.

Louis came last week and fitted our bathtub door He worked very effectively and left no mess. He was very friendly and polite and ran through the necessary forms explaining everything very clearly. He also demonstrated the workings of the door before input. I have to say it looks amazing and is brilliant in its effectiveness. I'm really pleased with it and it already makes my life so much easier. The company itself appears to be very professional and kept me updated on when they would attend and even rang me to see if I would like an earlier installation date following a cancellation as they were aware of my surgery date. Very impressed overall and would highly recommend. Many thanks

A brilliant solution to mobility problems with bathing! Having a Udoor in my bath has given me easy access but kept all the usual shower/bath options for other users. The family firm was easy to contact, pleasant, friendly and efficient and Joseph who did the installation was courteous, kind and very professional. Much more affordable than replacing the bath with a shower, too. I would recommend this solution to mobility issues to anyone- it’s brilliant!

This was a remarkable experience. Firstly, Fay was able to arrange the UDOOR installation on an exact date and kept me up to date on procedure. Secondly, Louis arrived on a chosen time and began work immediately and swiftly. I admired his application and the meticulous attention he gave to every aspect of the door installation and the care he gave to “ no mess, no fuss “ method of working. He is a very diligent and talented engineer. Thirdly, Iam extremely satisfied with the door and thank you on behalf of my wife, to whom the UDOOR will be a boon. Ken Duckworth. Rugby.

No Fear Bath Time My wife Susan had polio when she was a child and has a couple of tumbles getting in and out of the bath. Our experience of dealing with UDoor was first class. Fay was the point of contact and was great to deal with. Louis came to assess the bath and then came a couple of weeks later to fit the UDoor. We've been using the bath a few weeks now and Susan can face taking a bath without the fear of falling. Thanks UDoor.

Anne 09/04/19

The door is really high quality and the man who came and fitted it was really lovely. From start to finish they have been so friendly and professional. I still can't believe that it only took a few hours to do and now I won't ever get trapped in my bath again.

Carole 05/04/19

First class service and first class product, everyone I dealt with was helpful professional and made choosing this company easy. Would definitely recommend choosing them if you are having problems with that big step over the bath.

My Mother is delighted with her U-door installation. It has transformed her bathing experience and increased her independence, at a fraction of the cost of a new bathroom. The technician was polite, helpful and entirely professional, leaving absolutely no mess or cleaning up to do afterwards. Thank you U-door!
