On Top of the World Active Aging
On Top of the World Lifestyle Director
Lifestyle Director, Cammy Dennis’, philosophy for lifestyle administration is “aging through engaging.” She firmly believes that personal wellness springs from a multifaceted approach to optimal aging. A person’s capability, not age, is a philosophy firmly rooted in Cammy’s program development.
Fitness classes range from 10 to 45 residents per class, supporting the very important aspect of social and emotional connections. She is an experienced older adult educator presenting regularly at Master the Possibilities, a not-for-profit lifelong learning center adjacent to On Top of the World, and will be presented multiple times at the annual International Council on Active Aging. An authentic, active aging “boomer” Cammy is justifiably proud of the quality and quantity of On Top of the World’s opportunities. Her personal views on aging reflect the thread that she weaves into her professional role, celebrating older-adult capabilities and encouraging personal potential at any age.
