May Is Older Americans Month
Thursday, May 05, 2011 8:25:38 AM - Middletown Ohio

When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, at a time when interest in older Americans and their concerns was growing, President John F. Kennedy originally designated May as "Senior Citizens Month." President Jimmy Carter changed the name in 1980 to "Older Americans Month," and it is now a national tradition.

Every president since JFK has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking that the entire nation pay tribute in some way and advocate on behalf of older persons in their communities.  Also, every May since 1963 people in towns and cities across the country have come together to recognize the enormous contributions of older Americans.

Middletown Area Senior Citizens Board of Trustees extends its appreciation for and pays homage to the thousands of older adults throughout Middletown, Monroe, Trenton, Carlisle, Franklin, Hunter, and beyond for the many ways in which they bring inspiration and continuity to the fabric of our communities.

Who are they? They are our mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles and grandparents who shared their values and sacrificed to support us and our country. Someday it will likely be you and me depending on local resources to help ensure our dignity, as well as cost effective life choices.

Older Americans are more active in community life than ever before, thanks in part to advancements in health care, education and technology over the last several decades that have greatly increased their vitality and life options. In fact, most seniors today have choices with allow them to age in a way that helps them retain their dignity and save them money from costly alternatives.

Today, our seniors are mentoring the leaders of tomorrow, taking to heart the need for intergenerational learning to guide and inspire young minds.

They offer a take on times gone by not discussed in any history class—a unique perspective that sheds new light on contemporary issues.

Our older adults step up to help one another as well. They connect with other seniors by delivering meals, helping with home repair, assisting with shopping, and offering companionship, counseling, and care. Their efforts remind us that when older adults are active and engaged in their communities, everyone benefits.

Help us celebrate Older Americans Month! Join your neighbors not only to recognize what older citizens bring to our community but also to show support for those who require elderly services.

Contact Middletown Area Senior Citizens to find out about volunteer opportunities with programs that provide services for seniors to improve health literacy, increase access to quality health services, deliver food and nutrition services, provide financial and housing counseling, sponsor social and civic activities, and more.

We think you will discover that when you help seniors thrive in our community, you will gain far more than you give.
