Clark-Lindsey Celebrates Aging Week


Clark-Lindsey brought celebrate aging week to Champaign county 6 years ago. Each year it has grown with more free events and activities aimed at people who are 55 and better.  It has expanded so much that one week is just not enough!

Joining us to tell us how they are celebrating aging all year long are our friends from Clark-Lindsey, Sara Hawkins and Jacob Johnston.

For the past 6 years, we’ve hosted Celebrate Aging Week during the last week of September.  The purpose is to celebrate aging and active lifestyles through fun-filled engaging community events aimed at people who are 55 and better.

We’ve had great community partners each year that help us cover the cost so the events and activities we host are free or have a very low cost. It’s gone so well each year, we decided Celebrating Aging is something we should do all year long…not just one week a year!

We will be having quarterly Celebrate Aging events this year and our first one is The Clark-Lindsey Carnival on Saturday, April 6th from 1-3 pm.  It will be held indoors at Clark-Lindsey.

At Clark-Lindsey, we believe that your age does not dictate your ability to learn and grow. 

Research shows us that only 30% of how we age is determined by genetics.  70% is determined by how well we take care of ourselves.  There are 4 components of well-being:  spiritual, intellectual, physical and social.  When we can meet our wellbeing needs, typically we’re happier and live longer.

In 2014, we decided to actively spread that message throughout Champaign County with our first Active Aging Week and the response was terrific.
