Active Aging Week is an annual celebration of opportunities aiming to connect people 50 years and older to age-friendly programs, events and services in their community that encourage them to live healthy active lifestyles!



with the 2017 Active Aging Resource
Guide for Older Adults in Manitoba

The Active Living Coalition for Older Adults in Manitoba (ALCOA-MB) is once again joining the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) in promoting Active Aging Week Sunday, September 24th–Saturday, September 30th, 2017. Active Aging Week is a lead in to Seniors’ and Elders’ Month held throughout the entire month of October starting with Seniors’ and Elders’ Day, which is celebrated annually across Canada on October 1st. 
 
The 2017 theme is, “Ignite your Passion”, which truly embodies the spirit of active aging and living life to the fullest. With this invitation to “ignite your passion” in mind, we are encouraging people to reflect and reconnect with activities they were once passionate about and to ignite that passion once again! In keeping with the “never too old to try something new”, we also wish to encourage people to explore and discover new and purposeful passions.
 
The goal of this resource package is to connect people 55 years and older to age-friendly programs, events and services in their own communities that encourage them to live healthy active lifestyles and to help guide and inspire older adults in your community to participate in activities with people of their own age, ability and interests, as well as others in their community.

The guidelines are simple; events should be planned with older adult participants as the focus. Organizers at each host site will explore creative ways to invite, introduce and involve older adults in age friendly events and activities. Take this opportunity to encourage older adults to join in on the fun and experience what your group has to offer!

This Active Aging Resource Guide is dedicated to all older Manitobans with our deepest respect and with the sincere hope for the best that life has to offer.
