Give aging a new voice – one that reflects what today's older adults have to say! More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things and engaging in their communities. They're taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence and advocating for themselves and others.
What it means to age has changed. This May, join Ecumen in celebrating Older Americans Month, led by the Administration for Community Living.
Lois Bowers, senior editor at McNight's Senior Living, recently wrote about her experience dining with a vibrant older couple at a local jazz club, "This couple's presence was a good reminder that aging doesn't necessarily mean losing vibrancy. And that's a timely message as May begins." The article below, originally published by McKnight's, sheds light on how aging has changed.
