May is Older Americans Month
Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. The theme of this year's celebration is "Get into the Act" to focus on how older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communities and making a positive impact in the lives of others.
Join Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services (DAVS) on Saturday, May 30, at the downtown Hillsboro Farmers Market to celebrate Older Americans Month with community partners AARP, Ride Connection, Meals on Wheels People and Elders in Action. Stop by DAVS' booth and learn about services and volunteer opportunities. For more information, see the flier.
Do you have a little time to spare? How about a heart for helping people in need? We need you. Please consider volunteering! For more information, see the flier.

VA Benefits Alert
Individuals, organizations and some retirement communities are contacting veterans and/or their spouses about a veteran's benefit called Aid and Attendance. The Aid and Attendance program is for elderly or disabled vets who need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, feeding etc. Veterans believe they will receive the Aid and Attendance benefit and then be able to afford market rent at the retirement home.
