Active Aging Week
FAs wellness and healthy living continue to be priorities for all populations, especially during the pandemic era, the 20th annual Active Aging Week (AAW) treats older adults throughout North America to a broad array of exciting opportunities that promote physical, mental and social health.
Led by Osteoarthritis Action Alliance member organization, International Council on Active Aging®, AAW runs October 3-9 at host organizations such as senior living communities, senior centers, fitness centers, YMCAs and libraries that offer a variety of local events and activities at low-to-no-cost to participants. AAW highlights the value of embracing all dimensions of wellness – including physical, emotional, intellectual, social and more – to enrich quality of life.
Take advantage of the Theme Days this Active Aging Week. WALK! with Aegis Therapies offers daily activity suggestions and instructor-led workouts, and Abbott Nutrition helps you understand how to strengthen immune health through good nutrition and smart hydration. To find local AAW activities, you can look up host locations on the AAW homepage or consult with community organizations in your area. Finally, make sure to use the hashtag #ActiveAgingWeek all week on social media posts!
The ordinary experiences of aging alter and clarify your view of past, present, and future.
