Older Americans Month: May 2021

Since 1963, Older Americans Month has been celebrated in May to recognize the contributions of older adults to our neighborhoods, communities, economy and society. This recognition is especially important this year as we emerge from a prolonged period of uncertainty, isolation and overt ageism. There are three times as many older people in the US today than in 1963 and we're now a much larger share of the population. We also start more businesses, contribute more volunteer hours, provide more family caregiving, own more wealth, and have a greater overall impact on society than any other age group. Older Americans bring strength to our communities and that's something worth celebrating!
