CAMOES, Miguel et al. Exercise and quality of life in the elderly: different social and behavioral contexts. Motri. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.1, pp.96-105. ISSN 1646-107X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6063/motricidade.6301.

This study aimed to describe the quality of life of individuals over 70 years, taking into account the participation level in exercise programs, in both community and institutionalized context. Therefore a cross-sectional study was done, with a total of 250 subjects (74.8% female), evaluated according 4 different contexts. Group 1 (n=148) include community older subjects involved in an exercise program (frequency: 2 sessions/week; time: 45 minutes); Group 2 (n=41) contain elderly who belong to the community but not involved in regular physical activity; Group 3 (day care center, n=37) and group 4 (institution, n=24), aggregate elderly people who attend or are in care centers and did not exercise. To evaluate the perceived quality of life, SF36 questionnaire was performed. Multiple linear regression was done to estimate the trends of the scores according to groups of evaluation. After adjustment for age, significant trends (p for trend <0.05) were observed for physical function, mental health and vitality, with the best median results of quality of life belonging to the elderly enrolled in exercise program. Intervention programs based on physical exercise, even with short frequency and duration, are related with better quality of life among community elderly.
