Get Ready for Older Americans Month!

May is Older Americans Month—a time to celebrate older adults and raise awareness of important aging issues facing communities across the country. Learn how your agency can prepare to celebrate this year's theme—"Engage at Every Age"—and highlight the services that enable older adults to live active and independent lives in their homes and communities.

Throughout the month of May, n4a will promote resources and engage in a number of activities to highlight how our members and the entire Aging Network help older adults remain independent and active in their communities.

Your agency can get involved too! If you're still looking for ways to celebrate and promote Older Americans Month, ACL has got you covered! ACL has created a toolkit that includes logos, posters, web badges, sample articles and shareable social media images in both English and Spanish. The toolkit also includes information and tip sheets on suggested OAM activities and how to plan a local event in your communities. Visit the Older Americans Month website to get the celebration started!

n4a and the Aging Network are only as strong as the local agencies that work tirelessly every day to develop, coordinate and deliver vital services to older adults and caregivers in communities across the nation. To that end, stay tuned for information on a new monthly campaign n4a will be launching to coincide with Older Americans Month!
