May 1, 2015 marks the start of a new month. It is also Older American's Month. This year the theme is "Get Into the Act" in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Older Americans Act (OAA).
Older Americans Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of community engagement as a tool for enhancing the wellbeing of older adults. Now is the time to Get into the Act to make the benefits of community living a reality for more older Americans. Together we can promote healthy aging, increase community involvement for older adults, and tackle important issues like the prevention of elder abuse.
