Adventures abound during Active Aging Week 2015
There are many reasons why Active Aging Week® benefits older adults, as well as the organizations and individuals who host events. For participants, trying something new and different (or experiencing a new twist on a regular activity) is not only good for the brain, but also the spirit. When Active Aging Week events are announced, people anticipate what will occur, and reach out to family and friends to join in. New acquaintances and social participation usually accompany the events provided. All of these benefits were reflected in the theme of Active Aging Week 2015: Live your adventure.
