Many are taking part in activities to promote wellness and social connection. Sharing their wisdom and experience with future generations enriches our community.
For 55 years, Older Americans Month (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 opportunity to hear from, support, and celebrate our nation’s elders. This year’s OAM theme, “Engage at Every Age,” emphasizes the importance of being active and involved, no matter where or when you are in life. You are never too old (or too young) to participate in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotion well-being.
We encourage you to watch for upcoming activities on the Jefferson County Human Services and Aging Well Facebook pages and get involved!
Celebrate during May with @JeffcoHumanServices and @JeffcoAgingWell by participating in the Selfie Challenge! Show us how you’re engaging in #Jeffco. Take a selfie (or have someone take your photo) and post it to the Jeffco Aging Well Facebook Page with the hashtag #OAM18 and @JeffcoAgingWell!
