Discover the possibilities of Active Aging Week
When older adults discover active aging, they discover an approach to aging that recognizes people can live as fully as possible regardless of age or health conditions. The active-aging philosophy emphasizes what individuals can do, rather than what they can’t. It also celebrates society’s older members as full participants in the cultural, civic and personal domains of life. Each year, through Active Aging Week, organizations across North America encourage age 50-plus adults to be active and lead heathier, more vital lives, providing a wealth of wellness opportunities for them to explore. These organizations take part in the health promotion event for any number of reasons. Among them is the chance to make a difference and help older adults improve their quality of life.
