In our community, older adults are a key source of strength. Through their experiences, challenges and successes, they have built resilience that helps them face new challenges. When communities tap into this, they become stronger too. That’s why AAHP celebrates Older Americans Month (OAM) with the Administration for Community Living by promoting their theme for 2022: Communities of Strength, which recognizes the important role seniors play in fostering the connection and engagement that build strong, resilient communities.
Observe OAM by connecting with the seniors in your life. If you’re a senior, celebrate your strength and share your story with people from younger generations. OAM is a great time to:
When people of different ages, backgrounds, abilities, and talents share experiences—through action, story, or service—we help build strong communities. And that’s something to celebrate!
For more resources, visit the official OAM website, follow ACL on Twitter and Facebook,
and join the conversation via #OlderAmericansMonth.
