Materials Available to Recognize May as Older Americans Month

Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM). The theme for 2021 is “Communities of Strength.”

Older adults have built resilience and strength over their lives through successes, failures, joys, and difficulties. Their stories and contributions help to support and inspire others. This OAM, we will celebrate the strength of older adults and the Aging Network, with special emphasis on the power of connection and engagement in building strong communities.

The Administration on Community Living (ACL) updated the Older Americans Month website with new materials.
