Get Moving During Active Aging Week

Remaining physically and socially active is one of the best parts of a healthy retirement. Staying active in all areas of life is good for the body, mind and soul. The benefits are even greater when you participate in fun or meaningful activities with others.

Watermark recognizes the importance of an active lifestyle for people of all ages. That’s why we’ve planned a variety of classes and events to celebrate Active Aging Week from October 1-7. The observance was founded in 2003 by the International Council on Active Aging to encourage people to thrive as they reach age 50 and beyond. The celebration promotes healthy aging and wellness. We’re happy to participate in this event by offering fun activities for anyone who wants to get the most out of life. Join us for exercise classes, walks, special presentations and more, including these events.

Active Aging Week highlights the philosophy that Watermark practices all year long. We believe that people thrive when they can learn together, exercise together, volunteer together and just plain enjoy themselves together. We’re always looking for ways to help our residents enjoy an active retirement with their neighbors, family and friends.

Keeping the mind active goes hand in hand with physical fitness and social engagement. Watermark University classes offer an ideal opportunity to expand your knowledge or enhance your physical fitness in the company of others. Call for your free catalog today to find the classes that are right for you.

We can’t wait to see you in our communities during Active Aging Week and throughout the year. We know you’ll love thriving with us.
