Join the Coalition for Silver Solutions — AARP Florida, the Florida Health Care Association, LeadingAge Florida, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East and the Florida Association of Aging Service Providers —to learn more about Florida’s challenges as we work to provide the high-quality care that older Floridians have earned.  This event will focus on the challenges and solutions of these topics:

  • Institutional long-term care.  Florida’s nursing homes see older residents’ needs becoming more complex.  Simultaneously, annual staff turnover rates statewide average 60% or higher.  Meanwhile, Medicaid reimbursement rates for nursing homes are lower than the actual cost of providing care.
  • Support for family caregivers.  Three out of four older Floridians want to remain living independently in their own home as long as possible.  Nearly 3 million unpaid family caregivers make that possible for about 2 million older Floridians – but serving as a caregiver is a tough job.  Currently, more than 72,000 older Floridians are on waiting lists for home- and community-based services that could help.

This interactive summit will offer opportunities to hear directly from frontline professional caregivers, family caregivers, long-term care administrators, senior state officials, and policy experts on how Florida could improve long-term care. 

Coalition leaders also want to hear from you.  Attendees can provide their thoughts about the Coalition’s recommended policy changes.  Look for “Tell Me Booth” where attendees share video perspectives later posted to the Coalition’s website.

This free event includes refreshments but advance registration is strongly encouraged. Please note: by registering for this public event, you agree to allow your image and comments to appear in photographs or videos created to support this initiative.
