This article investigates the effect of adherence and compliance on the overall impact of exercise programs for older adults. A quasi-randomised trial was carried out to assess and compare retention and adherence in home-based and group-based exercise programs. Following analysis of the results the authors concluded that both home-based and group-based formats were successful in the short-term. However the group program had better adherence and compliance in the longer-term.
