May is Older Americans Month. The theme of this year’s celebration of older adults is “Get into the Act.” Throughout the month we are highlighting activities and personal stories from our Intergenerational Housing program and how it helps seniors stay active in their own lives and in the community.
May is also Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.'s blogiversary--we started blogging one year ago during Older Americans Month!
Here's a look back at five of our favorite posts about residents in our intergenerational housing program. The thing we love best about these posts is that each one shows how our seniors are active parts of their communities.
