If you're comparing doing absolutely no activity on non-training days to doing some light aerobic work, then yes, the latter should help you recover faster/better. I think you'd get a similar result, but added benefits, to instead doing some extensive mobility work, i.e. dynamic warm-up type exercises. That will give you the low-level aerobic work but also contribute to better mobility - of which few people have a totally ideal amount of, and certainly when in your 50s, mobility needs to be made a priority.
