4 Resources to Help Alabama Seniors During National Older Americans Month

   

 

 

 

The Administration for Community Living encourages communities to celebrate National Older Americans Month every May. Did you know that, for 2021, the theme is “communities of strength” in recognition of all that older people have lived through in their lives and learned during that time? Particularly during the pandemic that overtook the past year, people often draw inward and may not stop to think about what their elder neighbors can teach them. It can be, however, more important than ever to make connections with older residents in our communities, both for them and for us. Let us take a look at four resources to help Alabama seniors during National Older Americans Month.


1. Alabama Department of Senior Services. The Alabama department that oversees services targeted toward older residents will post activities and artwork throughout the month of May. If you are interested in connecting with seniors in your community through the department or having your children participate in activities, visit their website to learn more at https://alabamaageline.gov/older-americans-month/


2. Connect Kids and Seniors. Speaking of your children, this month can be a great time to get them connected to seniors in the community. Seniors often love spending time with children, and children have a lot to learn from seniors who have lived through important parts of American history. Check with your child’s school to see if there is a way to schedule visits to a senior home or bring seniors into the classroom to share their stories with the children.


3. Offer to Help the Homebound. Many seniors who are homebound need help to obtain basic necessities like groceries and medication. See if you can volunteer to make these deliveries in your community.


4. Seek Advice from an Elder Law Attorney. Help your loved one arrange a meeting. Consulting with an experienced elder law attorney can bring you and your senior loved one peace of mind as you put important legal plans and protections in place.


Our office is here to assist seniors and their loved ones in navigating elder law issues. Please reach out to our office to schedule a meeting time.
