Celebrating Older Americans Month: Powered by Connection

Established in 1963, Older Americans Month (OAM) is celebrated every May. Led by a federal agency, the Administration for Community Living (ACL), OAM is a time to recognize older Americans' contributions, highlight aging trends, and reaffirm commitments to serving the older adults in our communities.

This year’s theme, "Powered by Connection," focuses on the profound impact that meaningful connections have on the well-being and health of older adults — a relationship underscored by the U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory on the Healing Effects of Social Connection and Community. Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation (hhs.gov)

What can individuals do to connect?

  • Invite more connection into your life by finding a new passion, joining a social club, taking a class, or trying new activities in your community.
  • Stay engaged in your community by giving back through volunteering, working, teaching, or mentoring.
  • Invest time with people to build new relationships and discover deeper connections with your family, friends, colleagues, or neighbors.

For more information, visit the official OAM website and follow ACL on X, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #OlderAmericansMonth.

Training Opportunities at the Aging Center

The Aging Center is a university affiliated nonprofit mental health services facility administered by the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). It is currently one of the few psychology training clinics that addresses practicum and predoctoral internship training requirements in geropsychology. Clinical training is intensive and comprehensive, and experience is gained in all core service centers and in community integrated care settings. Advanced proficiency is achieved in integrated health care services, neuropsychological assessment, and psychotherapy skills.

When funding is available, the Aging Center offers a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical psychology with a specialty in geropsychology. Applications should be submitted through APPA CAS. Unique experience is gained in integrated healthcare, caregiver and family services, and optionally, neuropsychological theory and assessment. Background checks are required for all students providing services at the Aging Center.
