National Elder Law Month and Our Involvement


 

May is National Elder Law Month. It’s fine to make such a proclamation, but what does it mean?

Originally created through a declaration by Pres. John F. Kennedy in 1963, when it was referred to as Senior Citizens Month, the name was changed by Pres. Jimmy Carter in 1980 to Older Americans Month.

Freedom in Motion Pilot Program to Continue and Expand

Gainesville city commissioners have agreed to continue the Freedom In Motion pilot program for another six months, as well as expand it to seniors in the entire city.

The program was originally created as a pilot program last September but was limited to seniors living in the 400 building or the Turkey Creek Forest neighborhoods. The program has been sponsored by ElderCare of Alachua County, Uber and the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce.

Anthony Clarizio, ElderCare of Alachua County's executive director, told commissioners 102 rides had been taken during November and December. Each ride averaged 14 to 15 minutes and passengers traveled about six miles. Destinations included grocery stores, churches, shopping malls, community centers and health care providers.

It was those results that prompted the commission to continue and expand the pilot program.

National Family Caregiver Month

November is National Family Caregiver Month – and it’s important that we take time to appreciate the people who put their loved ones in front of themselves. 

Every year, more and more American family members are caring for a loved one with a chronic disability or condition that comes with old age.  Two out of every five adults are family caregivers; there are more than 90 million family caregivers in the U.S. today.

Often, family members give up everything to take care of their loved ones who need constant care.  Being a caregiver is no easy task; nearly half of family caregivers have to perform serious medical or nursing tasks that require complex work and time. 

We should always be grateful for those who sacrifice for loved ones. This month especially, take the time to thank a caregiver.
