    Older Americans Month Highlights Benefits of Active Lifestyle

    In recognition of Older Americans Month, the Department of Health and Human Services urges older Americans to stay active, take care of their health, and be involved in their communities. This year's theme Never Too Old to Play encourages older adults to maintain their health by taking advantage of Medicare's preventive benefits that include a yearly wellness visit, tobacco use cessation counseling, and a range of free screenings for cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

    Visit the Older Americans Month website for resources and tools to help plan and promote events and activities honoring older Americans this month.

    Preventive medicine is useful to every American age group and it is great to see physical therapists stepping up and providing preventative health services to so many. It is helpful to provide resources of information to so many caring individuals and collaborate with fellow health care professionals.
