In May, the ADRC Celebrates Older Americans Month

Each May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads our nation’s celebration of Older Americans Month (OAM). ACL designed the 2017 OAM theme, Age Out Loud, to give aging a new voice—one that reflects what today’s older adults have to say.

This theme shines a light on many important trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. What it means to age has changed, and OAM 2017 is a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.

Areas of focus will be:

Know Your Rights

Stay Engaged

Strive for Wellness

Explore New Things.

Open the Flyer for information and websites that offer information and tools to help you Age Out Loud.
