It was during 2007 that 13 nursing homes in the Care Venture Cooperatives developed a strength training program called BestAge, and in 2008, three more homes joined the program.


The name BestAge is an acronym derived from the following components: balance/flexibility, endurance strength, training.

Besides promoting self-confidence, which decreases chances of falling, BestAge can also reduce time spent being depressed or anxious, both robbers of health and happiness.
