The survey results, released in conjunction with FHCA’s 60th anniversary, show that Florida adults with aging parents are deeply concerned about their ability to help loved ones face the increasing challenges of age-related decline.
Leaders of Florida’s long term care profession say the findings underscore the need for Florida’s next governor to ensure that a range of service options are in place to help the state’s large and growing aging population.
