Active Aging Week and Intergenerational Magic
Every fall we celebrate Active Aging Week, originally initiated by the International Council of Active Aging to celebrate aging and to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle on a national scale. This week is the week! Numerous events are taking place around greater Richmond. You can read more about those activities here:http://www.agewellva.com/aaw.html
At Westminster Canterbury Richmond, we celebrate aging well every day. One of the unique ways we celebrate all ages is through partnership with our onsite Child Development Center. Intergenerational activities touch residents at every area of living, from independent and assisted living to our Mary Morton Parsons Health Center. Intentionally connecting youngsters with elders is a beautiful way to age well.
Enjoy a moment of intergenerational magic by watching this video. And take a moment this week to celebrate the ways you can live life well as you age!
