Each May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) commemorates Older American Month. This year's theme is "Age My Way." According to the ACL, the theme was selected:
In 2022, ACL will be focusing on aging in place – how older adults can plan to stay in their homes and live independently in their communities for as long as possible. The 2022 theme is Age My Way, an opportunity for all of us to explore the many ways older adults can remain in and be involved with their communities.
