Active Aging Week 2018

Wholeheartedly celebrating Active Aging Week seems to come naturally to the many RiverWoods Exeter residents who took part in the program once again this year. 

Active Aging Week at RiverWoods Exeter - September 2018   

Developed by the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA), Active Aging Week takes place in September and celebrates the positive aspects of aging today. The annual week-long campaign is designed to help older adults enhance all areas of their life—physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental.

At RiverWoods Exeter, Active Aging Week included a multi-generational walk/run event for residents, staff and families. There was also kayaking, hiking, biking, Pickleball, ping pong, aqua volleyball and... when it was time to catch our breath... we took in several helpful presentations by expert speakers on topics related to health and wellness. 

Lending a hand for seniors in the greater Exeter community

RiverWoods Exeter is proud of the continued partnership with our previous gala recipient Society of St Vincent de Paul Exeter NH  (SVdP). This summer we joined them in the monthly BBQ for seniors in the greater Exeter community. Teams from various departments at RiverWoods Exeter volunteered each month to cook, serve, and deliver the food with our friends from SVdP. We had a wonderful time and look forward to keeping the tradition alive next year!

NH is home to the healthiest seniors

 If you want to retire among the healthiest individuals, consider heading to New Hampshire.

That's because the Granite State is home to the healthiest residents in the 65-and-over cohort, according to SeniorLiving.com's analysis of Healthy Aging data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Intern's Perspective

By Mike McAuliffe, Marketing Intern at RiverWoods Exeter

Right when I walked through the front door of Campus Crossing for the first day of my marketing internship I could sense the welcoming energy that radiates throughout RiverWoods Exeter. I was immediately showered with warm greetings from everyone in the office, many of whom already knew my name, and was given a tour which introduced me to all three of our beautiful campuses. From the get-go I could tell that RiverWoods Exeter is a special place and that this internship will be an experience that I’ll thoroughly enjoy.

Bring in the Goats!

Last Tuesday we welcomed our three new two-year-old goats, Achilles, Plato and Eros, as well as Sophocles the bunny to the RiverWoods family! The four of them are settling in quite nicely to their new home here at RiverWoods Exeter. This initiative came from RiverWoods Exeter employees who attended the RiverWoods Business Management program, who wanted to introduce agricultural activities to our community that promote life and animal engagement. After extensive research, coordination and hard work, this initiative has come to fruition!
