This May, we celebrate the 51st annual Older Americans Month. First declared by President Kennedy in 1963, every president since has made a formal declaration recognizing May as Older Americans Month. This year’s theme for Older Americans Month is “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.”
Here at Primrose, we certainly don’t need a presidential declaration to remind us of the important and influential role you play in our communities and towns across our country. However, this designation gives us a wonderful opportunity to recognize the wealth of talent, experience, and wisdom that each of you has to share.
The United States Administration on Aging encourages retired Americans to focus on health and safety this month. This challenge goes hand-in-hand with our mission here at Primrose. At Primrose we strive to create “happy and healthy living environments for our growing senior population.” In the month of May, we want to especially encourage you to take some time and consider ways you could become healthier in the next year.
For ideas on how to become safer, healthier, and happier, stop by Primrose today! Not only do we have wellness programs specifically tailored to what you are looking for, but we also have a lot of fun!
So, this month, we celebrate and thank all of our older Americans for their leadership, guidance, and direction. Enjoy your month, as we all look forward to a “healthy tomorrow.” Remember, if you think of an idea or activity that we could do to help celebrate and raise awareness of this month, let us know!
