Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month 2022

 

Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of

Older Americans Month.

The theme for 2022 is "Age My Way". 

Older adults play vital, positive roles in our communities - as family members, friends, mentors, volunteers, civic leaders, members of the workforce, and more. Just as every person is unique, so too is how they age and how they choose to do it - and there is no “right” way. That’s why the theme for Older Americans Month (OAM) 2022 is Age My Way.

This year’s theme focuses on how older adults can age in their communities, living independently for as long as possible and participating in ways they choose.

 

While Age My Way will look different for each person, here are common things everyone can consider:

Planning: Think about what you will need and want in the future, from home and community-based services to community activities that interest you.

Engagement: Remain involved and contribute to your community through work, volunteer, and/or civic participation opportunities.

Access: Make home improvements and modifications, use assistive technologies, and customize supports to help you better age in place.

Connection: Maintain social activities and relationships to combat social isolation and stay connected to your community.

 

This year, Washoe County, City of Reno, and City of Sparks are excited to celebrate OAM with our partners in the aging community. Diverse communities are strong communities. Ensuring that older adults remain involved and included in our communities for as long as possible benefits everyone. Please join Washoe County, City of Reno, and City of Sparks in strengthening our community!

placement of at-risk dogs. CRCCS doesn’t care about age, breed, medical
conditions, history or even labels. We provide a refuge and opportunities
for dogs who were deemed unadaptable, out of options and just needed
to be given tools and time to overcome their past traumas, such as
neglect, abuse, and long-term confinement.

When the dog is ready, CRCCS finds their forever family. The CRCCS
journey is a beautiful thing, and we hope to share it with you! The tour is
