Happy Older Americans Month!

May is Older Americans Month! Every year the Administration for Community Living chooses a theme to celebrate older adults; this year’s theme is “Powered by Connection” and focuses on the positive effects that relationships and social connection have on the well-being of older adults. 

 

Ways to Celebrate 

  • Educate yourself on the ways social connection can affect your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. 
  • Share social resources in your community with friends and loved ones. 
  • Connect older adults with transportation to enable them to get out and be social.  
  • Volunteer your time at a local senior center or senior living facility. 
  • Encourage older adults to share their stories. 
  • Promote intergenerational events, such as having older adults share their stories with children at a school or library.  
  • Ask your social media followers to share their stories about connection.
