May Is Older Americans Month!

                                 Older Americans Month

Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The Administration for Community Living was created around the fundamental principle that older adults and people of all ages with disabilities should be able to live where they choose, with the people they choose, and with the ability to participate fully in their communities.  The 2019 theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to:

·         Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.

·         Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.

·         Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.

Communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger!  By engaging and supporting all community members, older adults are recognized as playing a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives.

Plants and Blooms ReImagined enjoys many opportunities throughout the year in realizing each facet of 2019’s theme – cultivating experiences that facilitate connection via participation; fostering a creative environment of engagement in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment; and celebrating the value of time, talent, and life experience contributed by participants in benefiting their and others Plants and Blooms ReImagined experience.
