Abstract/Summary The aim of this project was to investigate the impact of a progressive exercise program among semi-dependent older adults. Twenty three participants (three males and 20 females, 77.1+/- 8.7 years) were recruited from a Blue Care respite centre (n=13) or the associated senior citizens community (n=10) to participate in an exercise intervention. The exercise program combined a pre-existing low-intensity program with five functionally challenging higher intensity activities intended to replicate activities of daily living. Participants undertook 16 exercise sessions, once or twice weekly. Data for five functional performance tests (habitual and fast six metre walk, 30 second chairs stand, timed up and go and the FISCIT-4 balance), muscle function (grip strength), quality of life and balance self efficacy were collected at baseline and post intervention.
