Supervisors take note of Older Virginians Month

The Bay Aging buses that take older residents to grocery stores and doctors are busy on Westmoreland County roads. At Bay Aging’s request, the Westmoreland supervisors joined Governor Bob McDonnell and governing bodies from other Virginia jurisdictions in adoption of a proclamation identifying May 2010 as Older Virginians Month.
Language specific to Westmoreland cites recent United States Census Bureau data, relating that “one out of every nine baby boomers will live to be at least age 90. In Westmoreland County, the Census Bureau estimates that by the year 2020, the 65 and older set will increase to 4,299 people and to almost 4,800 by 2030.
Since 1963, the United States Administration on Aging has championed according May the referenced designation, and this year’s theme is, “Live Strong! Live Long!” The ini-tiative attempts to celebrate and promote “the diversity and vitality of today’s older Americans who span several generations.”
“Healthy lifestyle choices can prevent or control many of the region’s leading causes of death linked to smoking, physical inactivity, poor diet, chronic diseases and alcohol abuse,” the proclamation relates.
“There is now strong scientific evidence that it is never too late for healthy lifestyle choices to positively impact the physical, emotional and mental health of older persons. Older Virginians are encouraged to make healthy lifestyle choices that will help them live strong and long in order to maintain their independence in their homes and communities and avoid institutionalization.”
This year’s theme is intended to provide encouragement for people of every age to educate themselves and others “about the advantages of a healthy lifestyle and to access available resources in our communities and online.”
