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

Spanish Cove Retirement Village celebrated Active Aging week with activities and events that followed the Active Aging week theme. The week started with a WALK at the OKC Zoo. We had perfect weather for our wellness walk at the zoo and reached our daily step goals while having fun and seeing some exotic animals. Dr. Lowrance gave a nutrition talk on the importance of protein. He highlighted how protein and physical activity could boost endurance and performance. Participants received protein drinks and protein balls. We tested 58 seniors on the InBody. This interpretation of the body composition study gives seniors a quick overview of their bodies and offers tips for learning more about them. Residents participated in a Tai Chi demonstration and class where they learned the most effective exercise for protecting independence and reducing falls. To finish the week, our two dragon boat paddling teams raced at the OKC regatta festival which is a National Senior Games event. Both teams had at least one senior in their 90s competing. We may be the oldest competitive paddling team in the U.S. All events complimented each other to make the most fun Active Aging Week!
