Meet the Trailblazers: Celebrating Older Americans Month 2016

Highlighting Trailblazers at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center


We all have special seniors who have touched our lives—role models, caregivers, teachers, volunteers or civic leaders—the possibilities are endless. In recognition of Older Americans Month (OAM), we’re celebrating and promoting them in the month of May.

This years’ OAM theme, “Blaze a Trail,” was designated by HHS to bring attention to the ways in which older adults are reinventing themselves through new work and invigorated passions, ultimately engaging their communities and positively impacting the lives of people of all ages.

Throughout the month, we’ll be working with Serving Seniors to highlight seniors from the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center who are truly blazing a trail within the community. Click on the profiles below to meet a few of the seniors who inspire us.
