About Active Aging
With the growing population of adults 55+ comes growing concerns about quality of life in later years. An active lifestyle can help to prevent or manage many chronic conditions.
Much of the stiffness, pain and injury that we often associate with aging can be improved with activity. Improvements in mobility can help with day-to-day activities and prevent falls, which can lead to disability.
Inspired by the International Council on Active Aging’s Active Aging Week, this event aims to help anyone 55+ find the right activities and support to live a healthy lifestyle so they can extend their years of ability and independence. The event is just one way the Wellness Institute supports active aging and community health.
