Senior Services of Albany is pleased to announce the 23rd Annual Third Age Achievement Awards to recognize the contributions of area residents and professionals are making in our communities during the “Third Age” of their lives.

The Third Age Achievement Awards are not lifetime awards, instead the award honors the contributions made by individuals in the Capital Region after turning sixty.  This award aims to dispel the myth that getting older also means slowing down. 

All of the individuals have been nominated and exemplify what it means to live well and age well.  We accept nominations for extraordinary individuals who have contributed in the areas of Business, Health and Human Services, Medicine, Physical Fitness, Education, Volunteerism, Arts and Culture, Government, Philanthropy, and Law.
