Older Americans Month

The Older Americans Month logo features green, purple, and blue stylized stick figures forming a flower-like shape with a white heart as its base. Text reads: Age My Way. May 2022

We invite you to join us in celebrating older Ohioans during Older Americans Month in May. Contact your area agency on aging to learn about Older Americans Month activities in your community.

Age My Way

The 2022 theme for Older Americans Month, established by the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL), is “Age My Way.” 

Ohio has more than 2.8 million residents age 60 or older, who account for nearly one-quarter of our total population. Older Ohioans are a key source of our state’s strength, drawing on lifetimes of experiences, successes, difficulties, and resilience. Ohio is rich in this respect.

When older Ohioans are empowered to stay in their homes and live independently in their communities for as long as possible, it benefits them and their families, friends, and neighbors. For Older Americans Month 2022, we are celebrating the many ways older adults contribute to, support, and benefit from their communities, as well as the many programs, advocates, and providers who help them do so.

More information is coming soon. Please check back and follow #OlderAmericansMonth on social media for the latest from ACL and the Ohio Department of Aging.
