On July 14, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law. Over the past 50 years, the aging network established and funded by the Act has helped millions of older adults live and thrive in the communities of their choice. These services include home-delivered and congregate meals, caregiver support, preventive health services, transportation, job training, elder abuse prevention, and so much more.
ACL has created a series of infographics that highlight some of the many ways the OAA has has impacted the lives of older adults and their families across the nation. We hope you will join us in celebrating this historic anniversary by sharing these infographics with your family and friends on Facebook and Twitter.
