Every May, the Administration on Aging—part of the Administration for Community Living—leads the nation’s observance of Older American’s Month. For 2018,
the theme will be “Engage at Every Age,” which emphasizes that you are never too old 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, or seeking the mentorship of someone with more life experience than you are just a few examples of being engaged. Volunteering at your favorite non-profit organization also provides meaningful engagement that simultaneously positively impacts the community.
