|ADRC / Older Americans Month: May 2019|
Connect, Create, Contribute
Each year, more and more older adults and persons with disabilities are making a positive impact in and around Brown County. As volunteers, employees, employers, educators, mentors, and advocates, they offer insight and experience that benefit the entire community. National Older Americans Month (OAM) has been recognizing the contributions of the growing older population for 56 years.
Led by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and the Wisconsin Department of Health and Human Services, each May ADRC/Older Americans Month provides resources to help older and disabled Americans stay healthy and independent as well as resources to help communities support and celebrate their diversity.

- Connect with friends, family, and local services and resources.
- Create through activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
- Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.
