This month, we are joining the nation in celebrating Older Americans Month, an opportunity to recognize older Americans for their contributions and provide them with information to help them stay healthy and active. This year, Older Americans Month is focusing on safety and wellness with the theme Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.
Managing your medications and preventing falls are examples of issues that are common for today’s older Americans. Being proactive in these areas and being aware of possible dangers are the first steps to take to promote safe and healthy living. The Administration for Community Living has put together a safety tip sheet to help you or someone you know address these issues, in addition to others such as safe driving.
