Emeritus Senior Living Hosts Facebook Contest for Active Seniors

National Active Aging Week was started by the International Council on Active Aging in 2003, and it is held every year during the last week in September. As National Active Aging Week approaches, Emeritus Senior Living has decided to honor it by launching an Active Aging Week contest dubbed “The Most Active Senior I Know,” which will run from September 10th - September 23rd. This is a Facebook contest, where fans of Emeritus Senior Living are asked to share stories about the most active senior they know, that leads a Brain Healthy Lifestyle. Emeritus Senior Living wants to hear insight of the active lifestyle that the nominee leads on a daily basis, and in return the winner and nominator will be awarded a $100 gift package.

Once you become a Facebook fan of Emeritus Senior Living, the next step is to click on their “Active Aging Week” tab to enter the contest. It states that the contest does not begin until September 10, but it appears that a couple people already decided to share their nominations. No one has shared any pictures yet, but there are two stories on the Facebook page that describe very active seniors. The press release just recently went out, so it is likely that more people will find out about the contest and enter an active senior they know and love. Emeritus Senior Living currently has about 1,700 fans on their Facebook page, so it will be interesting to see how many new fans come aboard over the next few weeks because of the contest. Winners will be announced on September 28, just a couple days after the end of National Active Aging Week.
