Each May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) celebrates Older Americans Month to recognize older Americans for their contributions to the nation. This year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act, we focus on how older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communities, and making a positive impact in the lives of others. This year’s theme is “Get into the Act” and we hope you will join us in making this a month – and year – of action!
By the year 2020, more than 55 million U.S. adults will be over the age of 65. Older Americans Month is an opportunity to celebrate the many ways they contribute to our lives. http://www.acl.gov/ olderamericansmonth
