Celebrating Active Senior Living during the last week of September
We're thrilled to be kicking off Active Aging Week across all of our Brightview Senior Living Communities. Learn more about our innovative SPICE philosophy and SPICE in Motion partnership with Bayada Home Healthcare.
Initiated in 2003 by the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA), Active Aging Week takes place each year during the last week of September. The week-long campaign calls attention to and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today. It showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.
Active Aging Week challenges society’s diminished expectations of aging by showing that, regardless of age or health conditions, adults over 50 can live as fully as possible in all areas of life—physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental. The objective of the annual health-promotion event is to give as many older adults as possible the means to experience wellness activities and exercise in a safe, supportive environment. It also promotes the benefits of healthier, more active lifestyles across the life span.
All the activities they plan here at Brightview are wonderful. I’ve never been so busy and made so many friends.Joseph, Brightview Great Falls
