Celebrate Older Americans Month in May

The  Healthy Aging Collaborative joins the Administration on Aging, the state’s Executive Office of Elder Affairs and many organizations from across Massachusetts and the country in celebrating May as Older Americans Month.

The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities.

Here are some links where AoA and other organizations are providing resources and materials  in recognition of Older Americans Month to help promote wellness and awareness of issues facing older adults:

For those interesting in having Older Americans Month be a springboard to help start an Age- and Dementia Friendly Community process in your city or town, see AARP’s Roadmap to Livability explaining how to get started and contact the Healthy Aging Collaborative for details.
