May is dedicated as a celebration by the Administration for Community Living as Older Americans Month. This year’s theme, ‘Age Out Loud’, couldn’t be more appropriate to encourage older adults to advocate and share their voice. With the House of Representatives passing the American Health Care Act to replace and repeal major parts of the Affordable Care Act, we all need to speak-up and be heard about how this has critical impact on our lives. It is now up to the Senate to demand change. Your voice will count. Let us keep the Senate informed about what we think and care about. Let us determine the best and most independent way possible to continue living healthy lives in our communities. Say what you want to say about aging, and say it loud and clear!
The Vermont Association of Area Agencies on Aging wants to hear from you! Share your story about healthcare, and/or about how our local Area Agencies on Aging have helped you. Your stories may be used in our advocacy efforts on your behalf in the press and with the Senate so that we can be a powerful force as we - Age Out Loud! Share your story by clicking here!
