May is Older Americans Month, and with this year’s theme “Never Too Old to Play,” we want to give you a few ideas on how you can celebrate our elders and encourage them to stay engaged, active and involved in their own lives and communities.
Plan a “Day of Play” with a scavenger hunt or trivia game, take a walk with your aging loved one and listen to their stories, or even play a few games of Wii bowling with a senior in your life. There are so many ways to connect with our older generation — just get creative!
Visit www.olderamericansmonth.aoa.gov for more resources and ideas for celebrating Older Americans Month and for recognizing the achievements and contributions of our older Americans. They have left a legacy in our community, so get out there and show how much we appreciate them!
