Thank you to those who were kind enough to contribute to our On-Line Food Drive to benefit the local chapter of St Vincent de Paul, here in Tampa.
Through your generosity we were able to donate close to 200 food items ranging from ten large bags of spaghetti to sixty cans of tuna, and over forty cans of mixed vegetables.

The need to support workers who provide unpaid care for a family member is a growing reality for employers (large and small). As the population grows older and life expectancies increase, the need will grow significantly for the next ten to twenty years.
As many as one in six full-time or part-time employees care for an elderly or disabled family member, according to a fairly recent Gallop poll.
The role of family caregivers involves everything from arranging or coordinating, services/support, to navigating the complex health care system, to performing actual care in the home — all while balancing workplace demands and responsibilities.
Employers can help families save time and reduce stress – while improving workplace productivity, employee morale and loyalty – by connecting their employees with elder care resources through access to knowledgeable specialists and appropriate providers for family care services.

Are you a veteran or a surviving spouse of a Veteran?
There may be VA benefits available which you have not researched or you may have been denied in the past and your situation has changed. These benefits can help you pay for long-term care.

Call our colleagues at the Center for Elder Veterans Rights directly for a no-risk interview concerning eligibility … 800-394-1250
The Center for Elder Veterans Rights, PC is the independent law office of attorney Kristen Vanderkooi. CFEVR is solely focused on assisting elderly and disabled Veterans and their Families to access disability entitlements administered under Title 38 of the United States Code.
We do not practice in any other field of law, be it elder, civil or criminal. Our sole area of practice is administrative representation before the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Clients engage our services for two reasons: they want to know before a health care buying decision is made if (under Title 38 regulations) they qualify for VA disability benefits and if eligibility does apparently exist, assistance of a VA-accredited legal professional is preparing and prosecuting an effective benefit claim before the VA.
Our initial consultation is without fee or obligation. To obtain more information or ask specific questions pertaining to VA benefits or potential eligibility, call us at (615) 226-8600 or (800) 394-1250.

As always, we will be available Monday to help answer your senior housing questions.
In addition to our services, our local, Tampa/St. Pete-area network of trusted, associated professionals can assist with elder law issues (wills, advanced directives and power of attorney), coordination of veterans benefits, financial planning, down-sizing and moving – to name a few.
