Celebrating aging and the benefits of active living at any age, Active Aging Week showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society. This campaign also spotlights role models that lead the way. Learn how you can join with thousands of Active Aging Week supporters to help change the way we age.
Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."
La Loma Village was active and safe with a diverse selection of courses, by re-imagining classic game show via Zoom games, and good old-fashioned brain work! Our Lifestyle and Fitness Coordinator took advantage of the cooler mornings with a par course -- 8 stations set up around campus, each focusing on a different physical challenge. Our assisted living residents enjoyed their own version of the course! The pool ladies kept mobile and agile during Aqua Fit classes. Residents stretched bands and bodies with yoga and physiobands. The Wii bowlers stayed competitive. And we even brought back Tai Chi, led by a resident who successfully passed Open the Door to Tai Chi Instructor Certification a year ago. Brains stayed healthy when Sun Health President and CEO called Bingo via Zoom. And our fabulous leadership team took a well-deserved mental break when they played La Loma's version of The Newlywed Game, "The Odd Couple Game" via Zoom.
