We’re all living longer, so the question is: how do we minimize the years we spend in ill health? What can you do today in order to live a good life as opposed to just a long life.
Colin Milner, the CEO of the International Council on Active Aging, explains how the Center for Health & Wellbeing will help you on that journey to a long and healthy life.
Join the healthy living revolution!
I think that we are literally at the start of a quality-of-life revolution, and I don’t use that term lightly, because what it’s about today. It’s not about longevity; we know that we’re going to live longer, but we will live longer and better if we improve our quality of life. So it’s how do we minimize the years that we spend in ill-health so that whatever our life span is it’s actually all about having a good life as opposed to a long life. I believe that the Winter Park Foundation’s new building actually has the potential to change the way we age by transforming not only the way we view aging but the way we actually live by providing you vibrant services that up until this time haven’t been available in your local community.
I think what’s happening is it we’re morphing right now the old model of senior centers where people used to go in congregate and socialized to one now such as the Winter Park Foundation’s new building, where it’s all about revolution. It’s all about embracing technologies, and embracing you information, and bracing the possibilities and the Center like that is literally shaking the foundation of society.
And it’s not just for older people..
I’s certainly not just for older people, it’s about generations coming together, it’s about continuity throughout society as opposed to exclusion and elitism
