Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."

Active Aging Week celebrates aging and the benefits of active living at any age! It started with a trip to the to the South Carolina State House in Downtown Columbia. There are many steps throughout the building that we walked throughout the tour! Another Active Aging event included a cook-off between our team members where they prepared a meal in 40 minutes to then present to the residents for voting. We had a room full of Stars for our Dancing with the Stars event. There were 10 Team Members dressed up as a variety of celebrities and each performed a number for our residents. Wednesday, a few of our residents went to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden to go ziplining! Life is about trying something new every day, right? For some of our residents this was the first time they had completed a ropes course and zipline! Our final event where we hosted a walk where all proceeds from the walk were donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. Taking the time to celebrate wellness is what we love to do here at Wellmore of Lexington.
