Eastcastle Place and Newcastle Place Celebrate, Extend "Active Aging Week"

Sept. 15, 2010

According to a 2009 study featured on the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA)’s website, older adults who engage in any amount of exercise live longer and maintain a lower risk of disability.

 

In an ongoing effort to promote active senior living, Milwaukee Protestant Home, Inc. (MPH, Inc.) is extending “Active Aging Week,” held annually during the last week of Sept., by inviting seniors to attend a series of health and fitness-related presentations during the entire month of Sept.

 

Held at Eastcastle Place in Milwaukee and Newcastle Place in Mequon—two vibrant senior living communities operated by MPH, Inc.—the month-long celebration will include healthy cooking demonstrations and provide participants with several tips for achieving and maintaining healthier lifestyles.

 

“We constantly strive to make active aging a year-round priority at Eastcastle and Newcastle Place,” said Matt Furno, President and CEO of MPH, Inc. “Retiring from work does not mean retiring from life, and by extending ‘Active Aging Week,’ we hope to emphasize the importance of staying active not only within our own communities, but the surrounding area as well.”

 

Open to the public and free to attend, the presentations at Eastcastle and Newcastle Place begin Sept. 1 and address both seniors’ physical and emotional needs.

 

Said Becky Willett, MPH, Inc. Director of Aquatics and Fitness, “When creating the series, we wanted a mixture of presentations that included the light-hearted and entertaining topics to the informational ones. We’re really looking forward to opening our doors to the community and making a positive and healthy impact in seniors’ lives.”

 

Below is the complete schedule of presentations, as well as addresses for both communities. For more information about the events or to make a reservation, contact Becky Willett at 262-387-8840.
