May Is Older Americans Month

Date(s): May 1st, 2017 - May 31st, 2017
Phone: 1-800-331-2644

    • May is Older Americans Month, a time when we celebrate the contributions and the lives of our Golden Buckeyes.Older Americans Month also is a time when we recognize the many Ohioans who care for and serve our elders and ensure that they have opportunities to grow, thrive and contribute.

    • Ohio has 2.5 million residents over the age of 60 and our 60-plus population is growing more than 20 times faster than our overall population. Together, older adults and baby boomers represent more than 40 percent of Ohio's population today.

      Our growing and changing aging population presents both opportunities and challenges for Ohio and its communities to meet our elders' needs while also unleashing the collective power of our elders.

    Ohio's 12 area agencies on aging are community planners and work with local governments and businesses to shape policies and services that help older Ohioans and their caregivers continue to contribute to their community in meaningful ways.
