Living & Aging Well Event Set for May 4 in Bandon

BANDON – Join us for the first Living & Aging Well event on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at the Bandon Community Center, 1200 11th St. SW, brought to you by Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center and the Southern Coos Health Foundation.

This multigenerational event has been in the works for a few years and now we are proud to bring it to the Bandon community. The foundation lies in Blue Zone theories that help people age healthy and live life to the fullest. The focus of the day is on some of the main concepts that make this possible.

Concepts include bodies in motion, eating right, and having purpose and a sense of belonging. These basic foundational elements amount to what we call Living & Aging Well.

We want our entire community to be Living & Aging Well, so bring your grandmothers and grandfathers, parents, husband, wife, adult children, friends and neighbors. All are welcome to attend and thanks to the generosity of 100 Strong Bandon, we can bring this event to you free of charge.

We will use tools from the Age Café and World Café to work in small groups and will hear presentations from local groups to help us find ways to have a sense of belonging, all so our Bandon community can truly be Living & Aging Well. The day will include a light breakfast and lunch based on the Blue Zone diet and a fun collectible gift.

Again, this event is free thanks to the generosity of 100 Strong Bandon. Please reserve your space as soon as possible. This is a day not to be missed. The goal of Living & Aging Well is attainable – let’s explore it together!
