Our Debt to Seniors
We all stand on the shoulders of our seniors.
Those who have worked so hard to create the world we enjoy and to whom we owe so much should be paid back with our love, our respect and a continuum of services that enable them to live vibrantly as they age. We are blessed that the community of seniors is increasing: the number of seniors over 85 has tripled in the last 10 years and will continue to grow dramatically. But their needs are multiplying too, and becoming more complex.
Seniors face increasing challenges, as do families and caregivers that have the responsibility and privilege to care for them. I will continue to advocate for programs and legislation that provide access, choice, and support for our treasured elders.
