Celebrate Older Americans Month in May

May 7, 2020

Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The theme for 2020 is “Make Your Mark.”  

This theme was selected to encourage and celebrate countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Their time, experience, and talents benefit family, peers, and neighbors every day. Communities, organizations, and individuals of all ages are also making their marks. This year’s theme highlights the difference everyone can make – in the lives of older adults, in support of caregivers, and to strengthen communities.

The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative encourages age- and dementia friendly communities to celebrate the contributions made by older adults in your city, town or region.

This website provides artwork, activity ideas, and other materials to help you observe Older Americans Month. Don’t forget to share your #OAM2020 plans and stories on social media.
