Sign to help: Floridians urgently needs better care!

In our country, someone turns 65 every eight seconds, and already, more than 17% of Floridians are over the age of 65. We need a comprehensive long-term care system to support our rapidly aging population, and we need it now.

Join us in urging Senators Rubio and Nelson to support Senate Resolution 128, which calls for the creation of an affordable quality care system. Sign today and ensure that he feels the public pressure to speak out on behalf of Florida’s aging population and their caregivers.

As Floridians, we need our senators to play a leadership role in creating a better long-term care system. That's why when you sign this petition urging Senators Rubio and Nelson to support the resolution, we’ll deliver the petition directly to their offices.

Letter to
Senator Bill Nelson
Senator Marco Rubio
U.S. Senate
Every eight seconds, someone turns 65 in America. For Floridians, the silver tsunami is already here. More than 17% of Floridians are over the age of 65, many of whom will need long-term care. We need a system of care that will meet the needs of both our rapidly aging population and the growing workforce that enables seniors to live and age with dignity in their own homes.

Please help to ensure that Floridians, and all Americans, will have access to affordable, quality long-term care by assuming a leadership role in supporting Senate Res.128.
