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."

LiveWell Group. The Spinneys, which are LiveWell Group’s Active Aging Communities, embraced the theme of “try something new” for the ICAA’s 2023 Active Aging Week. Our staff positively supported and encouraged our residents to step outside their routine and explore new programs that promoted a “growth mindset.” Highlights of the week included new fitness opportunities for the body, mind and spirit (including Barre and Nia classes), Axe Throwing and Archery. It also featured special guest speakers, including the publisher of the “55+ Life” magazine who spoke on “living your best life,” and the week ended with a special annual “Pink Mile” walk to support our local Breast Cancer non-profit. Our lifestyle program, SpinneyLife, actively provides and promotes engaging opportunities for our residents to get inspired to try new things and be motivated in a safe and supportive community of helpful staff and like-minded peers. The highlight and true marker of success for our 2023 Active Aging week was the positive feedback we received from our residents. One resident was overjoyed when she hit a bullseye during the axe throwing event. She shared, “I just came to watch. I never imagined I would try, let alone hit the target! That was so fun!”
