Older American Month, May 2017

The month of May is Older Americans Month.  The Administration of Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, proclaimed this year’s theme to be “Age Out Loud” which reflects today’s older adults.  

 

This theme acknowledges many important trends of today’s Older Americans.  More and more older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and participating in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others.

In honor of Older Americans Month, at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 16, Mayor Trish Herrera Spencer will read a proclamation honoring the month of May as Older Americans Month.

 

Additionally, Alameda Hospital Offers Free Stroke Risk Assessment on Thursday, May 18 from 9:00 am - 12:00 in the Social Hall at Mastick Senior Center.  They will offer free stroke risk assessment screenings and other testing of other risk factors including blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, BMI and EKG.  Appointments are required and space is limited.  For an appointment, call 814-4362 or email:  relations@alamedahealthsystem.org

 

And Finally, on Wednesday, May 31, 3:00 - 6:00 pm the whole family is invited to the Annual Open House and Resource Fair at Mastick Senior Center at 1155 Santa Clara Avenue.  This event includes the 24th Annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day celebration sponsored by AES Therapy & Fitness.  Representatives from various organizations will be on-site to provide Free resource information and offer health screening.

 

Alameda is a wonderful island community, with its tree lined streets, friendly neighborhoods, great schools and lovely architecture.  I write about issue affecting Seniors living in Alameda  in my Senior Living in Alameda blog.  If you would like more information about Alameda please visit my Facebook page Living in Alameda.

Hi Evelyn... thanks for noting this. As an "older" American, myself, I should have known this, but I didn't. (Of course, in my head I'm still only 35 and not almost twice that age!)
