You have likely heard (or maybe even said) that “age is just a number.” In Douglas County, we know that number represents wisdom and experience that benefits our community.

During a regular meeting Tuesday, April 25, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners declared May as Older Americans Month, honoring the contributions of older adults in Douglas County and the partners that serve them.

“We’re all getting older, and we know our older adults want to age here, in Douglas County, where they have built a life and are part of a community,” said Douglas County Commissioner George Teal. “As a Board, we are committed to deeply understanding what our older adults need to age in place and building policies, and services around those needs.”

Older Americans Month was established in 1963 to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of older Americans while highlighting important trends and strengthening our commitment to honor older adults.
