Older Americans Month May 2023

Each May, the Administration for Community Living leads the celebration of Older Americans Month (OAM). The theme for OAM 2023 is Aging Unbound, which offers opportunities to explore a wide range of aging experiences and to promote the importance of enjoying independence and fulfillment by paving our own paths as we age. This May is the 60th anniversary of OAM and we can participate in Aging Unbound by embracing opportunities to change, exploring the rewards of growing older, staying engaged in our communities, and forming relationships.

This May, the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) invites everyone to explore the benefits of growing older. No matter the age, it is always possible to form new relationships and engage in your local community. To learn more, please visit Health.Mo.Gov/oam.

On Wednesday, May 24, DHSS is hosting a Senior Resource Fair at the Capital Mall in Jefferson City, MO, 12:00-4:00 p.m. to celebrate OAM. Please see flyer. There will be a range of exhibitors offering resources and information to our Mid-Missouri Seniors!
