May is Older Americans Month

Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The 2019 theme is, Connect, Create, Contribute, which encourages older adults and their communities to:

  • Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.
  • Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
  • Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

Older Americans Month 2019 includes suggestions, resources, and material to celebrate older Americans and the communities of which they are a vital part. Visit the website for ways to promote the observance with downloadable materials and social media using #OAM19 and #ConnectCreateContribute.
