May is Older Americans Month! This year’s theme is Connect, Create, Contribute. During this month, we want to encourage older adults to connect with friends, family, and the community; create by participating in activities that encourage learning, health and enrichment; and contribute to their community by sharing time, wisdom, and life experience.

If you are looking for some ideas on how to connect, create, and contribute this month, here are a few to get you started:

  • Plan an game or craft night and invite friends, family, or neighbors over for some fun
  • Do you have family and friend living out of town? Have a virtual date night! Call or video call your family or friends to connect with them
  • Attend an exercise or craft class at a senior center – take a look at event calendars from Forks Senior Center or Heritage Commons Enrichment Senior Center to find out what weekly classes are offered
  • Attend one of CareWell’s Be Well Workshops to enrich your health. Call 269-441-0930 or visit www.carewellservices.org for information about upcoming workshops!

This month, let’s focus on celebrating older Americans, and working to connect, create, and contribute in our community!
