There’s a new breed of seniors today. They have thrown out the rocking chair and picked up the hiking map. Bingo can still be a favorite pastime, but today’s “old folks” may play it as R&R after a day of outdoor adventures or indoor intellectual challenges.
Whether you live in an assisted living facility or are aging-in-place, the opportunities to engage with a multitude of activities abound.

Scrapbook groups meet to capture life stories through writing, photos, or mementos and allow you to reflect on life experiences with others.

Virtual classes will fill your yearning for intellectual stimulation.
