How Will You Celebrate Older Americans Month this May?

Older Americans Month 2022 Age My Way banner for Aging and Disability Services, the Area Agency on Aging for Seattle and King County

Each May, we celebrate Older Americans Month. This year’s theme—Age My Way!—recognizes that older adults want to and often do remain living and involved in their communities. Planning, participation, accessibility, and making connections all play a role in aging in place, and what each person needs and prefers is unique.

Aging and Disability Services—a division of the Seattle Human Services Department that serves older people, adults with disabilities, and caregivers throughout Seattle and King County in a multitude of ways—encourages its partner organizations and all community members to recognize and celebrate older people throughout the month of May. Plan now to incorporate Older Americans Month into programs and activities throughout May.

Following are ways to celebrate Older Americans Month that will help strengthen our families and our communities:

We look forward to doing even more in the years to come to celebrate older people throughout our community—not just during Older Americans Month but throughout each and every year.
