May is Older Americans Month! Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM), to recognize the countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Their time, experience, and talents enrich the lives of those around them. The 2023 theme is Aging Unboundwhich offers an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and discuss how communities can combat stereotypes.
