ACTIVE AND HEALTHY AGING

for physical, social and mental welfare

The Active and Healthy Aging project of the Arroios Parish Council covers a series of activities, initiatives, initiatives and programs aimed at combating isolation and social exclusion of the population with more than 55 years of age residing in the parish.

This project is based on the concept of “active aging” adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO) which presupposes the individual’s understanding of their potential for lifelong physical, social and mental well-being, taking into account their needs, desires, abilities and involvement with the community in which they are inserted.

Therefore, the Movement Classes, Art Workshops, Cultural Tours and the Arroios Academy for the Elderly are the programs organized by the Parish Council of Arroios that give shape to the concept and major project that is the Active and Healthy Aging.
