LeadingAge Need to Know, May 10, 2021

We are sharing the very latest with members with weekday morning email updates and live online updates three days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Visit the main coronavirus page anytime.

Following are the latest news and resources.

Building Communities of Strength Campaign

Join us throughout May as we mark Older Americans Month (OAM) and advocate for support of the aging services care infrastructure. Each May, the Administration for Community Living recognizes Older Americans Month to acknowledge the contribution of older adults. This year, the observance’s theme "Communities of Strength," is especially relevant as the country debates the value of supporting our national care infrastructure. We’re at a critical time for our country to renew and revitalize how we support older Americans and their families as millions of us live longer. Join us all month and check out our toolkit of materials and ideas on how to participate.
