Older Americans Month
Each year, the month of May is proclaimed Older Americans Month throughout the nation. The Administration on Aging develops a theme for Older Americans Month and disseminates the theme to the entire aging network. Each year the President signs a proclamation regarding Older Americans Month in celebration of the achievements and contributions of the nation’s older persons.
The Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, Inc. pays tribute to seniors each year during the month of May and affirms the skills and accomplishments of the older Americans residing in Pasco and Pinellas Counties. Many activities take place during Older Americans Month in the planning and service area. Local municipalities are asked to enact resolutions or proclamations declaring support for Older Americans month.
