Older Americans MonthOlder adults are a vibrant part of the fabric of every community. Every day, they make countless positive contributions, whether it's volunteering, mentoring to share experience with another generation, or making social connections. In honor of Older Americans Month in May, DHHS recognizes older adults who are engaged in improving the communities which they live in across New Hampshire. "Engage at Every Age" is the theme of this year's Older Americans Month (OAM), emphasizing that you are never too old to participate in activities that enrich your physical and emotional well-being. For 55 years, OAM has been observed to recognize older Americans and their contributions to our communities. Led by the Administration for Community Living"s Administration on Aging, every May offers the opportunity to hear from, support, and celebrate our nation's older citizens. "Engage at Every Age" emphasizes the importance of being active and involved, regardless of what stage you are in life. DHHS will use OAM 2018 to focus on how older adults in our area are engaging with friends and family, and through various community activities. Throughout the month, DHHA will share information designed to highlight local resources, stories and programs. We encourage you to get involved in Engaging at Every Age!
