October is Seniors and Elders Month

Between 2015 and 2030, the number of older persons worldwide is set to increase by 56%, and by 2030 the number of people aged 60+ will exceed that of young people aged 15-24.

In Manitoba, the Active Living Coalition for Older Adults is a partnership of organizations and individuals that encourages older Manitobans to maintain and enhance their well-being through a lifestyle that embraces daily physical activities.  To learn more about Seniors and Elders Month, as well as about opportunities for older adults, see www.alcoamb.org .
