Older adults “Ignite Your Passion” September 24-30, 2017
The eyes of the world are watching as older adults transform outdated concepts about “seniors” into the new realities of active aging, the philosophy that people can optimize their physical, social and mental well-being throughout their lives. As older adults progress on their journey through life, they have many choices. Active Aging Week September 24-30, 3027 is organized by the International Council on Active Aging®, as a national observance to highlight the diverse opportunities available to older adults. ISL is embracing the theme “Ignite Your Passion” by encouraging tours throughout the week for those interested in learning more about how senior living communities makes active aging a reality at any age.
Established in 2003, Active Aging Week highlights the passion that people have for life and new experiences at any age. This is right along the lines of ISL’s very popular Vibrant Life® program. Vibrant Life® is an innovative approach designed for enhancing and enriching residents’ lives across seven core components for well-rounded and meaningful experiences.
While the week-long campaign calls attention to and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today, Vibrant Life does it 365 days a year. Both showcase the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.
