In brief: Everyone's different

There's not a great "one size fits all" plan for 60+ women, but i'd focus on three things: 1) weight bearing (walking, stairs, dancing), 2) use of resistance bands or weights to strengthen muscles, and then 3) maintaining flexibility.
The 1st will help keep your heart healthy. The others will help keep your bones strong. Your doc should be able to come up with a unique plan for you.
