It is often said: “April showers bring May flowers.” The month of May also ushers in Older Americans Month to honor America’s seniors. On May 16 the PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care For The Elderly) Association of Michigan is hosting its annual Day of Advocacy; and on May 17 the State of Michigan, along with the Area Agencies on Aging, is hosting the annual Older Michiganians Day celebration. These will be held at the Capitol in Lansing and will provide an opportunity to inform the Michigan Legislature as to the importance of support for seniors.

Older Americans Month is an offshoot of policies that were begun long ago. In 1965 the federal government created The Older Americans Act that secures on-going funding for and support of senior services. In 1981 the State of Michigan followed suit with the creation of The Older Michiganians Act that guarantees state funding. It is important to continue advocacy to assure support for our seniors long into the future. Join with us by making your voice heard and performing an act of kindness for a senior who could use a little help.
