Older Americans Month 2018: Engage at Every Age

For 55 years, Older Americans Month (OAM) has been observed to recognize older Americans and their contributions to our communities. Led by the Administration for Community Living’s Administration on Aging, every May offers opportunity to hear from, support, and celebrate our nation’s elders.

This year’s OAM theme, “Engage at Every Age,” emphasizes the importance of being active and involved, no matter where or when you are in life. You are never too old (or too young) to participate in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotion well-being.

Remaining socially engaged can improve the quality of life for older adults. Carter Burden Network will use OAM 2018 to highlight the ways older adults in NYC can stay engaged through our programs, services, activities and classes designed to nurture mind, body and spirit. There's something for everyone at CBN:

In addition, participating in these programs and services provides the opportunity to form enriching connections with other members, CBN staff, and volunteers of all ages.

No matter where you are in your life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in and Engage at Every Age!
