Activity is a sign of healthy aging. That goes for those of us like me who are 50+ as well as our Moms & Dads who we may care for at home.

Active aging is about fitness and wellness. The mission of Active Aging Week is to celebrate adults aged 50 and older and their contributions to society and community. The week highlights the benefits of an active, healthier life and the ability of older adults to live well — regardless of age, related limitations or health conditions.
