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

Senior Living Communities: Evergreen Woods: We took 16 residents on a 9 mile Rail Bike Adventure in beautiful Essex, CT. The track took us along the Preserve ( a 963-acre forest recognized as the largest remaining unprotected coastal forest between Boston and New York before its acquisition for conservation) while enjoying the stunning New England weather. Several of our residents came to the fitness room 3x week for several months to ride our NuStep and/or Life Fitness bike to build their strength, endurance & confidence for this trip. Our group ranged in age from 72-93! At Evergreen Woods we are living our best lives and truly believe age is just a number!
