May is Older American’s Month, and Puyallup places value on being an elder-friendly city that has an array of activities, events, and resources for senior citizens. An elder-friendly community is one that provides opportunities for people to ‘age in place’ or to live in their home as long as desired by making resources available for day-to-day living. In addition to basic needs such as housing, safety and food, Puyallup strives to promote civic engagement for residents of all ages and to provide resources that maximize well-being and independence for senior citizens.
In addition to accessible parks, public transportation options, and state-of-the-art medical facilities, the City of Puyallup offers an array of services, classes, events, and social opportunities every month of the year for older adults. Information on the Puyallup Activity Center and the dances, exercise classes, lunch services, card games, lectures, and trip and tours that it hosts can found at: City of Puyallup Senior Services.
The Older American’s Month events are sponsored by the Puyallup Area Aging in Place Coalition, in partnership with the Puyallup Activity Center, the Puyallup Library, Pierce Community College, and other organizations. In addition to typical classes and programs, May will feature an inter-generational conversation on aging issues and a community café to discuss ideas for making communities more elder-friendly.
