People 50 and older will fine-tune their lives, health, safety and more at the first annual #AgeWell Day, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, scheduled Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 4p.m. at the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly Street.
The morning features three speakers on issues of Healthy Aging each addressing one of the three areas: Mind, Body, and Spirit. Two speakers include Dr. Alan Chapman, producer/host at KUSC Classical Radio and a faculty member at the Colburn Conservatory of Music will speak on the value of music in our lives as we age; Pilates instructor Monica Blake will share her own story of courage in physical recovery and the value of exercise for the body.
The Center will provide a morning of demonstrations, workshops, and information beginning at 9 a.m. to Noon. Information and demonstrations will focus on health and care including medical marijuana, and being prepared for “The Big One” presented by the Pasadena City Fire Department. Mini classes and workshops will focus on exercise and dance. With a focus on common interests and concerns among older adults of all ages, backgrounds and abilities information will be provided about activities, social groups and clubs.
The public is welcome to dance the afternoon away enjoying a variety of dance music from Ballroom to Line to Salsa and Disco with music by Eric Torres.
“It’s never too late to begin – and continue – the habits that can keep you active, healthy, safe and secure,” said Akila Gibbs, executive director of the Pasadena Senior Center. “Older adults who want to improve or maintain their health, active lifestyles and social activities will find that there is something for everyone at the Pasadena Senior Center #AgeWell Day.”
