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

Active Aging Week celebrates the importance of continuing to stay active as you're aging! Our Wellness Team created a variety of programs for our residents. We started off the week with a Ping Pong Tournament where residents could flex their competitive side. Next, we took our residents to a local orchard to pick apples. The apples were later made into a German Apple Pie to enjoy at our social gathering! To incorporate nutrition, we hosted a make your own acai bowl party. Residents were able to try out different ingredients to see which were the tastiest for their acai bowl. Later that week we left the gym to incorporate the park equipment into our workout session. The local fitness park allowed us to get creative with our work out and have fun! What a fun way to try something new!
