Older Americans Month

olderADid you know that May is Older Americans Month?

Older Americans Month has been observed since 1963. It was established by President John F. Kennedy, who had an interest in the needs of older Americans.

Originally observed as Senior Citizens Month, Older Americans Month celebrates the contributions of senior citizens to our country, especially those who have served in the military.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act, created to meet the needs of the country’s growing aging population.

The 2015 theme is “Get into the Act”, which promotes health, and other issues that affect senior citizens. To learn more about Older Americans Month, go to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living website.

The College will host two programs in observance of Older Americans Month. Join us on May 20th for a workshop on Geriatric Mental Health, and on May 21st for a workshop entitled “Keeping Your Mind and Body Healthy as You Age”.  For more information go the Events page.
