Trident Area Agency on Aging Rocks to Help Seniors!

Every year since 1963, May has been the month to appreciate and celebrate the vitality and aspirations of older adults and their contributions and achievements. It is a proud tradition that shows our nation’s commitment to honor the value that elders continue to contribute to our communities.

This year’s Older Americans Month theme—“Unleash the Power of Age!”—emphasizes the important role of older adults. This May, communities across the nation will recognize older Americans as productive, active, and influential members of society.

Older Americans Month celebrations will acknowledge the value that older adults continue to bring to our communities by making an effort to applaud recent achievements of local elders and inviting them to share the activities they do to unleash the power of age.

While Trident Area Agency on Aging provides services, support, and resources to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month is a great opportunity to show special appreciation! We will continue to provide opportunities for elders to come together and share their experiences with one another, as well as with individuals of other generations.

Trident Area Agency on Aging is hosting a month long Golden Ribbon Awareness Campaign to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Older Americans Month, along with our 2nd Annual Rock A Thon. The Rock A Thon will be held at Tanger Outlet on May17th from 11:00am-6:00pm. Come to Tanger Outlet and support our twenty teams as the Rock to support our area seniors. Browse and bid on twenty one of a kind masterpiece rocking chairs and donate to support our area seniors. 100% of the funds raised stay local to provide home and community based services to Older Adults, Adults with Disabilities and Caregivers. Trident Area Agency on Aging has been providing assistance, advocacy and answers on aging since 1991!
