Active Aging Week 2010: kicking off the planning stage
Older adults living life as fully as possible within the dimensions of wellness—that is the concept of aging promoted by Active Aging Week, the annual health promotion event spearheaded by the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA).
Because wellness is a multidimensional model—one that encompasses physical, spiritual, vocational, intellectual, social, emotional and environmental wellness—a myriad of activities can enhance health and well-being. The key is to find the right activities for an individual. By offering everything from health fairs to lectures, brain games to concerts, dances to walks, and painting to canoeing, professionals in the ICAA community help older adults discover how to “be active your way”—the theme of Active Aging Week 2010.
