The health care professional in the care of the older adult is often associated with the treatment of diseases in the elderly. <br>An equally important role is that played in enhancing the functional status and quality of life of the older adult. <br>This role is examined with regard to exercise therapy, prevention and treatment of falls and in the education of the elderly. <br>Physiotherapists, biokineticists and exercise scientists are encouraged to participate in multidisciplinary health care teams. <br>Together they should recognise the significant opportunity to advance 'successful aging' by prescribing exercise to delay the onset of infirmity and to compress morbidity.
