KEEPING THE MIND SHARP AND HAVING FUN AT THE SAME TIME

Jennifer Griffin, Vice President, Engagement, CC Young



We love a good celebration. In fact, since January, CC Young Senior Living has been actively celebrating our centennial anniversary and with more exciting programs on the horizon, we have no plans to slow this party down.


At CC Young, we firmly believe the ability to learn new things does not have to diminish with age. On the contrary, the potential for learning can continue to expand because the brain does not stop growing provided you continue to exercise it. Research has shown that learning new things throughout your lifetime can aid in keeping your mind strong and fend off memory loss. To help you stay mentally fit, there are two exciting learning opportunities the curious mind will not want miss.



If you are creative – and even a smidge competitive – the Spirit is Ageless Art & Writing Contest is back! This annual event has been a CC Young staple for more than 20 years, attracting artists near and far to compete and show their art. The only stipulation: the artist must be age 55 or better at time of completing the work. The show is judged anonymously and awards are given for first, second, and third place in 15 categories. Entries will be accepted August 23 and 24 at The Point on the CC Young campus. Winning artwork will be displayed in the Art Gallery at The Point and winners will be recognized at a celebration on Friday, October 28, 2022, from 2 to 4 p.m. For more details, visit www.ccyoung.org/events.

The Spirit is Ageless is not the only way to exercise your brain. Beginning in September, CC Young and the University of North Texas have joined forces to present the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) and its wide array of classes taught by accredited UNT professors. A true benefit being an OLLI student: No tests. No grades. No stress. No limits. OLLI at UNT is a lifelong learning program that offers non-credit courses and events designed by and for adults 50 and better. As the exclusive senior living partner in North Texas to offer this program, participants can simply enjoy learning while feeding their souls and even make a few new friends along the way. Curious? Call us for more information, 214-841-2831.

But there are more benefits of lifelong learning for seniors than staying sharp. With the right attitude and right engagement, there is something to celebrate every day! Wouldn’t you agree? If you are “Out and About,” then come see us and experience these programs.
