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."
Our community routinely provides active movement activities such as lawn bowling, crochet, swimming, hiking and putting green golf. Our goal during active aging week was to offer an array of activities for all abilities and interests. We offered an activity each of the week. We highlighted our local area with a civil war history presentation followed by a trivia game about the facts. Brain health was an important aspect of the offering and involved dance, movement and brain wellness games. We encouraged engagement and socialization for all who participated.
