Active Aging Week

Are you searching for Active Aging Activities?

Older adults are invited to discover new places and people during 2013 Active Aging Week®, which is being held Sunday, September 22 through Saturday, September 28, 2013. Active Aging Week, organized by the International Council on Active Aging®, is a national observance to highlight the diverse opportunities available to older adults in a fun and educational atmosphere. Montgomery and Bucks County are hosting a variety of events through the week to celebrate Active Aging Week.

For 2013, the theme “Discover your community,” encourages older adults and the organizations that serve them to focus on developing a more active community as part of an overall wellness objective. Whether as a tourist to a new local site or “discovering” that a stairwell would be better off painted and lighted, local hosts across Montgomery and Bucks County will plan vibrant programs of activities that are fun, educational, and focus on community connections.

Active Aging Week is an annual event held the last full week of September (prior to October 1, International Day of Older Persons). The week was initiated by the International Council of Active Aging to give as many older adults as possible the means to experience activities and exercise in a safe, friendly and fun atmosphere. During the week, host organizations provide a variety of free activities, such as classes, educational seminars, access to fitness facilities, health fairs and community walks. Look into the local Peak Centers for activities planned during the week.

It is now time to work with your Social Worker or Case Manager and decide when you will be discharged from the Hospital or Skilled Nursing Community. These professionals will work with you to make sure your transition is worry free and that you will arrive home with the right tools and people to rehabilitate completely after your sickness or injury. It is important to understand that the decisions you make are in your complete control and will ultimately be your decision. One of the decisions you will be making is which Home Health Care provider and which Home Care provider you would like to use to insure a complete recovery at home.
