Retention, adherence and compliance: Important considerations for home- and group-based resistance training programs for older people

Elizabeth Cyarto, Wendy Brown and Alison Marshall

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.
