Staying Active While Aging

September 6, 2013

Hillcrest Senior Living is sponsoring the second annual Active Aging Week in Bozeman the week of September 23-27. Active Aging Week, offered in association with Bozeman Deaconess Health Services and the International Council on Active Aging, helps those age 65 and better learn to stay active by engaging in all dimensions in life.

Among the new activities and exercises offered at no charge this year in a safe, no-pressure atmosphere are bridge and yoga, along with tours of the Pioneer Museum and Sunset Hills Cemetery, presentations on social media, smart phones, fraud protection, Medicare, heritage gardening, the new economy and advanced care planning, musical and theatrical entertainment, several lunches, and a Lend a Hand Fair where seniors can learn more about opportunities to use their life skills as volunteers for local non-profit organizations.

The week kicks off with an opportunity to meet Kevin Pitzer, the new CEO of Bozeman Deaconess Health Services and a presentation by guest speaker and retired MSU Cooperative Extension Service faculty member Dr. Charles Rust of Big Sky Toastmasters, and winds down with a wine and cheese party/closing ceremony.

Activities will be held at Hillcrest, in Bozeman Deaconess Health Services conference rooms and at the Bozeman Public Library. There is no charge to participate, but advance registration is requested. For more information or to register call 522-1644 or visit
