Throughout the year and during Older Americans Month in May, celebrate older adults and the many ways they make a difference in our communities. The U.S. Administration on Aging (AOA), part of the Administration for Community Living (ACL), leads the observance of Older Americans Month (OAM).
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has done much to improve the quality of life for millions of people — including older people - with disabilities. Explore various resources and learn how the ADA applies to and impacts older adults.
