Older Americans can't wait any longer for Congress to reauthorize the Older Americans Act! You can help by taking 5 minutes to reach out to your Senator and Representative about the importance of the OAA to seniors in your state and district.
Rural older adults often desire to age in place, yet few studies identify ways to improve aging in rural communities. A team of researchers at the Universities of Saskatchewan and Regina interviewed approximately 40 rural seniors about what actions they thought supported healthy aging in rural areas.
With thanks to our sponsors, partners and donors, we are able to offer EIGHT free web seminars in August, including up to 7 complimentary CEUs!
The August webinars cover a variety of topics, from aging services to brain health to home safety to aging in community to intergenerational programs. There is something for everyone!
The video below has been making the rounds on Facebook recently and here at ASA we couldn't help but be struck by what a terrific example it is of the benefits of aging in community! Perhaps, in the future these videos won't "go viral" on social media, as more and more communities adapt to accommodate and integrate the growing aging population, making scenes like this one commonplace. In the meantime, we hope this video will inspire you to continue tackling the challenges of creating age-friendly communities.
