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."

For our Active Aging Week we were quite busy. We had a fun circus party, playing many games and enjoying some circus themed snacks. We had a Oktoberfest Lunch Celebration with polka music and German themed food and drinks. We also had a Lunch trip to the beautiful countryside and enjoyed some shopping and visited outside for over an hour just talking with each other. We had a Garden group come and make crafts with the residents. We also swam in our pool one afternoon. We celebrated National Taco Day with a Happy Hour serving up delicious beef and chicken taco pile ups. Had a Saturday drive to see some pretty sights and ice cream on the way home. And rounding out the week we attended a Jazz concert that we attend once a month.
