Rochester Oasis is changing the face of aging
There are abundant reasons to go back to school. We can learn a new skill, broaden our knowledgebase or add to our resumés.
Research shows that participation in ongoing learning opportunities may help you live longer and better. It is part of a broader approach called “active aging.” The World Health Organization defines this as “the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age.” Does that sound familiar?
While technically not a “school,” Rochester Oasis provides opportunities for lifelong learning and healthy living in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
We don’t see aging as a number, but as a time of opportunity for continued growth. The shared sense of community through new and renewed friendships can add to the quality of the experience as well.
At Rochester Oasis there is room for it all. Last year, we continued many of the exercise and wellness classes such as NIA (Non-Impact Aerobics), Yoga, Tai Chi and Senior Spunk that have become an important part of our overall health programming.
