May is Older Americans Month

We’re celebrating all month long here at Crane’s Mill!

For starters, we thought it might be nice to learn a little more about the month, and how it came to be. We started with this from the Older Americans Month website:

May is a month of fresh beginnings. Perennials bloom once again, blazing a trail of bright color. May is also when we celebrate Older American’s Month (OAM), acknowledging the perennial contributions of older adults to our nation. The 2016 OAM theme is Blaze a Trail. The Administration for Community Living will use this opportunity to raise awareness about important issues facing older adults. We will also highlight the ways that older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities.

Learn more about Older Americans Month by visiting the official website. There, you’ll find resources on finances, wellness, and more. Plus, there are all sorts of materials for you and your friends, neighbors, and family members to get involved in spreading the word!
