Celebrate Older Americans Month

Older adults have made countless contributions and sacrifices to ensure a better life for future generations. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. This celebration recognizes older Americans for their contributions and demonstrates our nation’s commitment to helping them stay healthy and active.

This year’s theme for Older Americans Month is “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.” The theme focuses on injury prevention and safety to encourage older adults to protect themselves and remain active and independent for as long as possible.

Unintentional injuries to this population result in at least 6 million medically treated injuries and more than 30,000 deaths every year. With an emphasis on safety during Older Americans Month, we encourage older adults to learn about the variety of ways they can avoid the leading causes of injury, like falls.

While the Alamo Area Agency on Aging provides services, support, and resources to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month offers an opportunity to provide specialized information and services around the important topic of injury prevention. This information will help older adults take control of their safety and live longer, healthier lives. Evidence-based classes like A Matter of Balance, Chronic Disease Self-Management, Chronic Disease Self-Management, and Stress Busting for Family Caregivers are available to residents in the 12 rural counties in the AACOG region.

For more information, visit www.alamoaging.org or call 1-866-231-4922.
