Dignity in Aging

Dignity in Aging

 

By the year 2050, for the first time in history, seniors over the age
of 60 will outnumber children under the age of 15.
 
ISSUE 
Florida has the highest concentration of older Americans in the country and Broward has Florida's fastest growing population of people over 85. More than half report they need help with everyday activities. Elder services receive just 2% of County dollars, the lowest of all seven of the County's focus areas.
 
WHY IT MATTERS 
An increase in the availability and quality of support services for those over 80 has the potential to improve the quality of life of 1 in every 5 Broward residents.

OUR GOAL 
To update systems, connect access points, and strengthen programs to meet the growing needs of the rapidly expanding population of residents over 80.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
Projects we will support, must demonstrate impact in one or more areas:
  • Increase connections between service providers to create a continuum of care and address gaps so that elderly can have easier access to information and services. Creation/establishment of innovative systems of care so elderly get the help they need when they need it.
     
  • Strengthen and expand programs that help maintain independence and mental and physical health.  Address the rise in older adults needing help with every day activities such as driving, finances, housework, cooking, and personal care services.  Alleviate social isolation and engage elderly in ways to improve mental and physical health.
     
  • Affect the quality and innovation of caregiving services for total family health with attention to alleviation of physical and psychological health of the caregiver that results from chronic stress, which comprises the quality of care to the elders they serve.
