Keeping active around the house will help elderly people reduce their risk of accidents, thereby lowering the likelihood of having to make a claim on their overseas health insurance.
This is the view of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, which noted that older people should not suddenly take up strenuous exercise if they are unused to it.
The charity's Sheila Merrill commented: "If you can't do anything else, keeping yourself moving and doing little jobs around the house can help to keep you more mobile than just sitting and not doing anything at all."
Her remarks come in light of a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, which suggested that introducing a music-based multitask exercise programme could help older individuals improve their balance and gait while reducing their rate of falls.
This in turn could lower the risk of them having to make a claim on their overseas medical insurance for hospital treatment costs following a fall.
