May is Older Americans Month

Every May, the Administration on Aging, which is part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. Keeping with the tradition that has been in place since 1963, President Trump signed a formal proclamation in support of recognizing and honoring senior Americans.

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

There are many ways that communities can help celebrate Older Americans Month and recognize their contributions to the success of our communities, such as organizing a local walk, picnic or planting a garden. Click here to learn more and view additional resources.
