Who says that getting older means that it’s time to slow down? Not Capri Communities, which is why we are bringing to Southeast Wisconsin the first annual Enjoy Life Active Aging Symposium for older adults, taking place at the Brookfield Conference Center on Wednesday, June 21 from 8am – 2pm. This is a FREE event that is open to all but focused on those post-retirement, ages 55+. Full details can be found at enjoylifesymposium.com.

As Southeastern Wisconsin’s #1 senior living company, Capri Communities knows a thing or two about older adults and the role that staying active in mind, body, and spirit plays as we age. This is why we embarked on this journey to create an event designed specifically for older adults.

The Enjoy Life Active Aging Symposium will address with humor and optimism, ways to embrace active aging, try new things, make new friends and enjoy life. This first of its kind event will include dynamic breakout speakers, educational enjoy life exhibitors, interactive activities, music, entertainment, and much more.

John McGivern will kick things off at 9am as the Keynote Speaker. John is famous for his Emmy award-winning PBS series, Around the Corner with John McGivern. He is currently working on a new TV series, John McGivern’s Main Streets. He will address the aging process with personal, funny, and touching stories that make us realize that they are our stories too.

Following John’s Keynote, Symposium attendees can customize their morning - selecting from seven fantastic breakout speakers who are experts on subjects including travel, finance, flexibility, dating after sixty, gardening and more. They can also visit with a great variety of enjoy life exhibitors who will be on hand to interact with attendees on topics ranging from health and wellness to adventure to learning and community involvement. Whether you are interested in skydiving or smoothies, Botox, birds, or bocce leagues, salsa dancing or salsa fresca – there will be something for everyone!

The Symposium will also include live entertainment and feature interactive demonstrations/lessons on pickleball and line dancing. There will also be some fun surprises, including a special performance by the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies.

In a world that seems to have too much negative noise, this Enjoy Life Active Aging Symposium will focus on all things possible, fun, and positive for older adults. It will highlight ways to get involved and explore interests that you may never have had the opportunity to do before. Most of all, it will encourage people to keep learning, stay active, and embrace new opportunities.

So, whether you stop by for an hour or give us your morning, this is an event that you won’t want to miss. For full details, visit enjoylifesymposium.com and mark your calendars to attend on June 21 and join in on the fun!
