Every May, the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation’s observance of Older American’s Month. We are pleased to announce the 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, which emphasizes that you are never too old (or too young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental and emotional well-being and celebrates the many ways older adults make a difference in our communities.
Participating in activities that promote mental and physical wellness, offering your wisdom and experience to the next generation, seeking the mentorship of someone with more life experience than you—those are just a few examples of what being engaged can mean.
In the coming months, we will provide materials to help you promote and celebrate this observance. Visit the official Older Americans Month website in early 2018 for logos, posters, and more! To start promoting online, use the official hashtag #OAM18.
No matter where you are in your life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in and Engage at Every Age!
