We encourage you to celebrate Active Aging Week, held from September 23rd through the 29th and sponsored by the International Council on Active Aging. The event will have “theme days” that focus on different aspects of healthy aging. This year they include:
- The WALK! With Aegis Therapies
- Wellness with Water (Aquatic Yoga or Dance for those communities with pools!)
- Nutrition for Strength and Energy
- The Silent Challenge (managing incontinence)
Go to the Active Aging Week website for more information on the theme days: https://www.activeagingweek.com/
