CULLMAN, Ala. – Senior adults play vital, positive roles in our communities – as family members, friends, mentors, volunteers, civic leaders, members of the workforce and more. Just as every person is unique, so too is how they age and how they choose to do it – and there is no “right” way. That’s why the theme for Older Americans Month 2022 is Age My Way.

Mayor Woody Jacobs and The Senior Companion Program with Community Action Partnership of North Alabama celebrate Older Americans month in May by recognizing seniors.

This year’s theme focuses on how older adults can age in their communities, living independently for as long as possible and participating in ways they choose.  “The Senior Companion Program’s primary focus is to assist older Americans, as well as others who may need us, to help them continue living independently as long as possible.  The program volunteers are also seniors over the age of 55 who choose to give back to their communities by volunteering their time to help others as they age,” said Melissa Tallant, Senior Companion program director.

Ensuring that older adults remain involved and included in our communities for as long as possible benefits everyone. Please join Mayor Woody Jacobs and Community Action Partnership of North Alabama in strengthening our community:  Become involved with the Senior Companion Program by volunteering and getting paid, participate in community activities…. Do it your way!
