May is Older Americans month.
Every May, the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads this celebration and the theme for this year is Engage at Every Age. This emphasizes that you are never too old (or too young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental and emotional well-being and celebrates the many ways older adults make a difference in our communities.
Bridges Together has created some resources to help you incorporate this theme into your intergenerational planning and engagements for the month of May and we are announcing it a few months early to give you ample time to plan!
