Older Americans Month Encourages Variety of Supportive Activities

May is Older Americans Month, and the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) invites you to salute all older Americans and send a message about the importance of staying healthy and as independent as possible. The AoA is sponsoring a fun one-mile walk and low-impact tai chi session with local older Americans in Washington, D.C., on May 27. Other communities across the country will be holding similar events throughout the month. 

The AoA has also conducted a national "My Recipe for Strength" contest that invites Americans to share what they are doing to age strong.  Winning entries will be selected in three categories: video, photography, and poetry/prose. 

The theme for this year is "Age Strong! Live Long!," which recognizes the diversity and vitality of today’s older Americans and highlights the importance of staying healthy throughout our lives.
