    May is Older Americans MonthThe 2015 Older Americans Month theme isGet into the Act.

    Older Americans Month 2015: Get into the ActOlder adults are a vital part of our society. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. The theme of this years celebration is Get into the Act, to focus on how older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communi-ties, and making a positive impact in the lives of others.

    The theme also reflects on the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act. President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law in July 1965. Since that time, the Act has provided a nationwide aging services net-work and funding that helps older adults live with dignity in the communities of their choice for as long as possible. These services include home-delivered and congregate meals, caregiver support, community-based assistance, preventive health services, elder abuse prevention, and much more.

    By promoting and engaging in activity, wellness, and inclusivity, more Ameri-cans than ever before can Get into the Act. While Berkeley Senior Services provides transportation, In-Home Care/Respite to family caregivers, home deliv-ered meals, and Medicare Counseling to older adults year-round, Older Amer-icans Month offers an opportunity to emphasize how older adults can access the home- and community-based services they need to live independently in our community. It is also an occasion to highlight how older adults are engaging with and making a difference in those communities.Throughout the month, Berkeley Senior Services will be conducting activities and providing several opportunities that will empower seniors to remain healthy and active! For a complete listing of activities, be sure to check out the calen-dars in this issue or visit our website:, or like us on Facebook! ***
