May 2016 – Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month 2016

May2016-Older Americans MonthMay is a month of fresh beginnings. Perennials bloom once again, blazing a trail of bright color. May is also when we celebrate Older American’s Month (OAM), acknowledging the perennial contributions of older adults to our nation. The 2016 OAM theme is Blaze a Trail. The Administration for Community Living will use this opportunity to raise awareness about important issues facing older adults. They will also highlight the ways that older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities.

Be a trailblazer! Find more information online about promoting activities, inclusion, and wellness for older Americans in your community.
