Evaluate models of peer mentoring and individual goal setting for sedentary older adults with memory complaints (the INDIGO study)

 
 
Themes: Intervention
 
The INDIGO trial investigates whether individual goal setting (the approach used was developed by CII in the UK) and peer mentoring from active same-aged community members can improve physical activity levels of non-demented sedentary older adults (60 years and older) with memory complaints. This project aims to conduct a long-term follow up of INDIGO participants 12 months after their last follow-up.
