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

We offered seven different events during our active aging week. The events varied in ability levels and offered diversity to a variety of interests. Active does not have to mean just physical, but representative for all wellness dimensions. All events offered "active" social interaction, the chance to show off individual abilities and skills and fostered the acceptance for meeting everyone where they are for life's challenges. Participates had the ability to choose to watch or actively play in one or all the events during the week.
