Givens Estates Becomes Part of International Council on Active Aging

Givens Communities, including Givens Estates in Asheville, has successfully applied for and been granted membership in the International Council on Active Aging, an association that leads, connects and defines the active-aging industry, supports organizations and professionals that develop wellness environments and services for adults over 50.

Among the services provided is an industry-leading publication, the Journal on Active Aging. The Council offers online education-certificate courses, webinars, virtual summits, career development tools, as well as industry and scientific research, and white papers.

The Council has two major campaigns to promote the mission of encouraging active aging as a solution to improving the quality of life for older adults: Active Aging Week and Changing the Way We Age. Both campaigns align with Givens Communities mission and uphold our core values.

Active Aging Week is held during the last week of September as an opportunity to promote and publicize the efforts of motivated organizations to reach older adults with the key messages of staying active, healthy, and engaged.

The Changing the Way We Age Campaign helps spread the message from a public stage through volunteers who help transform the active-aging concept into reality – inspiring their peers and individuals of all ages to live life to the fullest, regardless of circumstances that society might consider impediments to active aging. They play a key role in the campaign as educators and role models in their local communities.
