Every year, seniors across the country make positive contributions throughout our communities and have an important impact on our lives which is why AmeriCare proudly celebrates Older Americans Month, 2019!
Older adults contribute immensely to our nation – they help with family care, volunteer in our communities, and help to guide younger generations. It is clear they deserve a month to honor and recognize their place in our lives. Older American Month (OAM) is celebrated throughout May each year and is used to highlight their many contributions to our society.
OAM is led by Administration for Community Living (ACL) and is designed to provide important resources to help American seniors stay healthy and independent.
For 2019, the OAM theme is Connect, Create, Contribute.
We encourage you to:
Connect with friends, family, and everyone who supports Older American Month participation.
Create activities that promote learning, health, and personal development.
Contribute your time, talents, skills, and experience that will benefit the community.
AmeriCare celebrates OAM by promoting ways that community members of all ages can partake in helping older adults thrive.
