How to improve an already good credit score

Several months ago, one of my banks informed me that they would be closing my credit card account due to longterm inactivity. Because the card I had with them was my very first and therefore oldest line of credit, closing the account dropped my 778 credit score by nearly 25 points (according to Credit Karma). I know my score is still respectable, but I'm determined to restore it anyhow. Thus far, however, I've been unable to find any information that would be useful to a person such as myself, who has always been fiscally responsible. If I've never been late with a payment, never maxed out my cards, always pay off my balances in full, and don't have any other loans or debts to my name, what can I do to improve my score?
