Don't let the myths about aging keep you from enjoying the golden years! The Summit Area YMCA, in partnership with Brandywine Living at Mountain Ridge and Unicity Healthcare, is thrilled to bring you an enlightening event - "Myths on Aging" on Tuesday, August 8th, from 11am to 12pm at the Berkeley Heights YMCA.
Does aging really mean diminishing? Are all seniors bound to live a less-than-vibrant life? We'll bust these common stereotypes and reveal the facts about growing older, allowing you to embrace and celebrate every chapter of life's journey. During "Myths on Aging," we'll distinguish stereotypes from the reality of growing older. This event aims to educate, motivate, and assuage any concerns about the aging process, arming you with the knowledge to savor every phase of life.
Our partners, Brandywine Living at Mountain Ridge, a prestigious luxury assisted living community located in Watchung, NJ, and Unicity Healthcare, leaders in providing comprehensive geriatric healthcare solutions, will host this illuminating event. Get ready as these industry trailblazers debunk myths and share essential facts about aging.
Whether you're a senior seeking clarity or someone caring for an elder, this engaging event at our Berkeley Heights YMCA venue promises to enrich your understanding of aging. Join us in tearing down the myths and stereotypes surrounding aging, replacing them with facts, and beginning a conversation that respects and acknowledges life's diverse stages.

We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit.
