Earlier this year, Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic hosted nearly 1,000 members and non-members for “Thriving After 60 Day” – a day when seniors, their families, and friends discovered ways to be healthy, fit, and active – both physically and mentally.
Participants attended educational workshops led by expert physicians, therapists, and health educators, in addition to wellness activities including yoga and meditation sessions, sexual health seminars, massages, and more. Check out a video of the event and participants here.
The event was so well received that we’re taking “Thriving After 60” on the road!
This fall and winter, Kaiser Permanente is offering a series of free workshops, seminars, and social events – with a healthy twist. These “Thriving After 60” events will take place in many of our medical centers throughout the Washington, D.C. region and provide attendees not only with advice on staying active and maintaining their health, but also with new ways to meet like-minded friends.
The workshops and seminars will include topics like:
- Life Care Planning
- Medication Management
- Nutrition After 60
- Technology Basics
- Healthy Aging
- Mindfulness and Meditation
There will also be a small festival event at the National Zoo on October 7, a free Halloween-themed scavenger hunt at the Maryland Zoo on October 28, and free admission to Cox Farms’ Pumpkin Madness on November 4. Visit the “Thriving After 60” site to register and sign up for updates.
Regardless of age, we can all work toward achieving total health. Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Total Health in Washington, D.C. explores total health at all ages. The Center’s interactive exhibits allow visitors to explore the many physical, mental, social, and environmental factors that may impact individual health and the health of communities. Stop by the center to “meet” Rosemary and Leo – a couple enjoying their golden years – and explore ways to care for individuals at home, keeping them safe and healthy in an environment where we know they will thrive.
The Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health hosts both internal and external educational events. All events – including annual banquets, quarterly meetings, trainings, interviews – can be customized to incorporate the interactive exhibits that make the Center for Total health experience both fun and informative for attendees. If your organization is interested in hosting an event, please send us an event request via our website. We look forward to hearing from you!
