Older Americans Month with NASW

NASW invites social workers to join and promote the celebration of Older Americans Month (OAM). Established in 1963 and coordinated by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), OAM celebrates the contributions older adults make to society.

The theme for OAM 2017 is Age Out Loud. This theme emphasizes the ways in which older adults live with boldness and passion, inviting people of all ages to learn about how older adults are redefining aging. ACL offers OAM 2017 materials, activity ideas, resources, and stories to enhance your OAA celebration.
