About Optimal Aging Month

What is Optimal Aging and Why is it Important? Optimal aging is a new understanding of aging, in which people flourish physically, socially, and emotionally from birth to death in compassionate intergenerational communities. This view of aging transforms the way we understand and approach the aging process - from one of fragmentation and unnecessary suffering to one of inter-connectedness, access to information, and resources. 

The Month Theme: "As I age, I dare to..." Daring to dream and discover as we go through life, in the face of whatever challenges we may encounter, is essential to aging optimally. As we age, we dare to always find creative solutions to the questions that matter most. What do you dare to do? 

Share what you #DareToDo with us by taking a picture of you with your answer to the theme! Either email us or share on social media using @ULOptimalAging #DaretoDo.
