In May we were honored to mark Older Americans Month – a time to celebrate seniors and the rich contributions they have made to our nation, communities, businesses, and families during their lives.
But year-round, we should take time to consider how we can build into the lives of seniors.
Today, in America, there are more than 50 million people aged 65 or older. And every day, a staggering 10,000 additional U.S. residents turn 65 years old. Estimates predict that by 2060, we will have 98 million Americans 65 or older.
We also recognize that seniors have many needs as they age, from housing and financial challenges, to physical and mental health needs.
That’s where any of us can help make a difference by engaging with seniors in our community – and encouraging seniors to engage in their community.
