Journal Article (Journal Article)

In 1986 Gerofit, an exercise and health promotion program for older veterans, was established. This paper describes the program in detail by summarizing the patient assessment protocol, the exercise program, and program evaluation, as well as observational outcomes for up to 5 years of follow-up. Our data suggest that exercise provides older veterans with beneficial gains in function that are maintained for 5 years.
