Aging fit together with OldStars
With OldStars, the National Elderly Fund connects people over 55 to grow older together. We inspire a lifetime of exercise. That is why we are committed to ensuring that everyone in the Netherlands has low-threshold access to an age-friendly exercise or sports environment at home or in the neighbourhood. Our exercise inspiration gives seniors the opportunity to stay fit in their own way. In this way they experience the benefits of a lifetime of exercise, an important objective of the National Fund for the Elderly and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. The aim is for seniors to meet each other to exercise responsibly together, so that they retain control over their own lives.
After OldStars football, the Ouderenfonds already successfully launched 15 new adapted games for the over-55s, such as OldStars hockey, OldStars table tennis, OldStars cycling and OldStars running. OldStars in the neighborhood and OldStars Vitaal focus on target groups in and around residential care centers.
