Wholeheartedly celebrating Active Aging Week seems to come naturally to the many RiverWoods Exeter residents who took part in the program once again this year.
Developed by the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA), Active Aging Week takes place in September and celebrates the positive aspects of aging today. The annual week-long campaign is designed to help older adults enhance all areas of their life—physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental.
At RiverWoods Exeter, Active Aging Week included a multi-generational walk/run event for residents, staff and families. There was also kayaking, hiking, biking, Pickleball, ping pong, aqua volleyball and... when it was time to catch our breath... we took in several helpful presentations by expert speakers on topics related to health and wellness.
