Active Aging Week celebrates the positivity of aging today. It also focuses on the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.
This week-long campaign, started by the International Council on Active Aging®, challenges society’s outlook on aging by showing that, regardless of age or health conditions, adults over 50 can live a full life in all areas, including physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental.
The purpose of this annual health observance is to give older adults the means to experience wellness activities and exercise in a safe, supportive environment. It also promotes the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle.
We have collected a few articles from our FirstLight Care blog that may help you and your loved one stay active and engaged, whether you are looking for ways to move more, ideas for improving your mental health, or tips for keeping the older adult in your life more social.
Let’s celebrate the positivity of aging!
