Active Aging Week at Presbyterian Senior Living

By: Emily Shoemake
October 11th, 2018

The last week in September marks Active Aging Week (AAW), which was founded in 2003 by the International Council on Active Aging. The goal of AAW is to call attention to, and wholeheartedly celebrate, the positivity of aging today. During AAW, many senior healthcare providers participate by hosting various physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental centered events. During these events, the hope is to provide seniors with the opportunity to experience wellness activities and exercise in a safe, supportive environment and promote the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle. The primary objective of this week-long campaign is to diminish the societal stigma around aging by showing that seniors can live just as fully as anyone else in all areas of life-- regardless of age or health conditions. Every year, Presbyterian Senior Living embraces AAW by providing engaging opportunities for residents to participate in!

By: Steve Proctor
September 26th, 2018

One of the pillars of PSL’s Leadership culture is the principle of stewardship.  At first glance it appears to have a mostly financial focus – The effective application of resources to achieve the mission of the organization. This is consistent with Webster’s definition of stewardship: “The conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.

When you are practicing mindfulness (which I've found lends itself hand and hand to meditation) you are present, rested in the here and now, and fully engaged in the moment.
