Welcome to the Active Aging Website
“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?” – Satchel Paige
A new committee was developed in 2011 called Active Aging, a subcommittee of the Waushara Prevention Council, Inc. The group was developed to encourage aging adults, 55 years and older, to continue active and healthy lives. The goal of the committee is to explore unmet needs and services, and look at existing services and opportunities to support.
Through the efforts to support the community agencies and support groups, the committee will encourage active aging adults to volunteer and make a difference in their communities; building and developing skills, talents, and wisdom. Other supported advocacy effort will focus on the awareness of educational programs, health promotion, and other community resources.
There are many ways to stay active and to be a helper within our community. Becoming involved is a great first step in keeping physically and mentally healthy and also a great way to give back to you the community.
