Older Americans Month
Every year since 1963, May has been the month to appreciate and celebrate the vitality and aspirations of older adults and their contributions and achievements. It is a proud tradition that shows our nation’s commitment to honor the value that elders continue to contribute to our communities. This year’s Older Americans Month theme “Unleash the Power of Age!” emphasizes the important role of older adults. This May, communities across the nation recognize older Americans as productive, active, and influential members of society.
Older Americans Month celebrations acknowledge the value that older adults continue to bring to our communities by making an effort to applaud recent achievements of local elders and inviting them to share the activities they do to unleash the power of age. READ MORE
A Network on the Web for MN Caregivers
Without support, managing the daily care of a loved one experiencing a health crisis is exhausting, emotionally draining and time consuming. For caregivers, who are often isolated with nowhere to turn, it can feel like the world will come crashing down at any moment. But more and more, caregivers are turning to technology and finding just the support they need while sharing their own knowledge with other caregivers.
Greater Twin Cities United Way, together with the Wilder Foundation and the Metropolitan Caregiver Service Collaborative, have joined together to launch a new online community here on United Front called Caregiving NOW, A Network on the Web for Minnesota Caregivers.
