- During May, we have been celebrating Older Americans Month. The theme for 2020 is “Make Your Mark,” encouraging us to recognize the many contributions seniors make to their families, their communities and to the nation. As it happens, 2020 is an especially good time to focus on older Americans, because this year as the coronavirus pandemic has grown, there has been increased attention to the way older adults are portrayed and treated in this country and around the world. Ageism has come to the forefront.
