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

Our community had a blast participating in Active Aging Week this year! There were are variety of activities planned for our residents throughout this week to highlight the importance of staying active. We started off with Bocce Ball in our courtyard and later that afternoon one of our lovely residents teach us the Mexican Hat Dance! Our Members love to learn new things and brush up on old skills, so she taught us the Charleston as well, they are going to be professionals in a few weeks! We practiced our Hole-In-One skills with a putt-putt tournament. Wednesday spiritual wellness was our focus. Yoga is a great way to relax and unwind so we practiced a 5 minute meditation outside in the fresh air! Our residents love to get out and explore new places so we headed over to the Harris Street Park in Fort Mill to explore! They have seesaws, swing sets, slides, and great walking paths! We enjoyed everything there was and had a lovely picnic to finish our time at the park! Thanks to our amazing Dining Services Team who always keep our nutritional needs in mind! The week concluded with pool volleyball and acai bowls! Talk about a successful week celebrating wellness and active aging week!
