"Communities of Strength" Theme Underscores Resilience of Older Americans

By Paul R. Pace

Join NASW and other organizations around the country in celebrating Older Americans Month (OAM) in May. The 2021 OAM theme, established by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), is “Communities of Strength.” This theme underscores not only the strength and resilience of older adults and the Aging Network (in which many social workers serve), but also the power of connection and engagement in building strong communities. 

Visit ACL's Older Americans Month website for activity ideas, promotional materials, and other resources. For information about social work with older adults, visit NASW's Aging practice pages.
