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.
