This book and CD contains the wealth of ideas and activities for occupational therapists, support workers, students and other professionals working with elderly individuals in the community. It is now referred to in the NICE guidelines (2009) where it has been identified as the intervention of choice for professionals responding to the guidance by this professional body. Taking a holistic approach, the programme challenges the participants to examine their lifestyle and make positive changes promoting good physical and emotional health. As one member of a group exclaimed "you didn't give me a new lease of life, you gave me back my life!" The themes include-the relationship between activity and health, maintaining physical and mental well-being, safety in the home and community and personal circumstances.
