Active Aging Week is September 23 – 29, and Friendship Village of Dublin’s residents are ready to roll! Active Aging Week is an international campaign that promotes healthy living in retirement and is redefining senior stereotypes.
“More than 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 today and every day for the next 15 years,” said Rita Doherty, Friendship Village of Dublin’s executive director. “Active Aging Week is the perfect time for baby boomers, and all seniors, to learn ways they can stay healthy and vibrant throughout their retirement — and have a little fun in the meantime.”
Every year, Friendship Village of Dublin’s wellness committee creates fun, engaging ways for residents to celebrate the week. Designed to promote healthy choices in a supportive environment, participants learn ways to stay healthy and active both physically and mentally.
Activities featured during this year’s Active Aging Week include:
- Monday: Opening ceremony for Active Aging Week and a dive-in movie at the pool
- Wednesday: Memorial walk for wellness
- Thursday: Pound class – fitness through active drumming
- Friday: Resident talent show
In addition to wellness activities, Friendship Village of Dublin is also celebrating Active Aging Week with live music, signature cocktails and more at a grand-reopening event on Thursday, Sept. 27. The event marks the completion of their $75-million expansion, which includes 79 luxury apartments, a dining facility, a glass atrium, a courtyard and a larger parking lot.
“Our goal is to connect residents and the greater Dublin community with the resources they need to enjoy a long, healthy retirement,” said Doherty. “Now that our expansion is complete, we’re excited to end the week with an event dedicated to keeping Dublin a great place to retire.”
