Promoting Health and Connection for Older Americans

May is Older Americans Month, and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is commemorating it by spotlighting resources available to Texans and hosting an engaging three-part webinar series on aging and living well.

This year's theme, "Powered by Connection," acknowledges the impact that meaningful relationships and social connections have on the emotional, mental, and physical health and well-being of older adults.

As part of this initiative, Age Well Live Well is hosting a three-part webinar series:

  1. Be Healthy: May 15, Noon to 1 p.m.

  • Explore resources promoting physical activity, nutrition, stress reduction, chronic disease prevention, and mental health.

  • Learn about Texercise, a health and wellness initiative for adults 45 and older.

  1. Be Connected: June 25, Noon to 1 p.m.

  • Discover resources and statewide efforts promoting connections, including the Know Your Neighbor Campaign and the intergenerational Ages United series.

  1. Be Informed: July 23, Noon to 1 p.m.

  • Gain insights into resources for decision-making, future planning, and stress reduction for caregivers.

  • Learn about statewide campaigns such as Texas Talks and Strengthen the Care You Give.

By prioritizing health, connection, and information, HHSC is empowering older Texans to live fulfilling lives.
