older americans

Every May the Administration for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The 2019 theme is “Connect, Create, Contribute,” which encourages older adults and their communities to:

• Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.

• Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

• Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

Communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger. By engaging and supporting all community members, we recognize that older adults play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.

Everyone benefits when everyone can participate.

Connect, create, and contribute for stronger and more diverse communities now and throughout the year.
