Help & Care to Those In Need
Brevard County, Florida, has one of the fastest growing elder populations in the United States. With more than 110,000 citizens over the age of 65, Brevard has the 7th highest percentage of elders in the state and the 24th highest percentage nationally. Nearly 30,000 of our residents are between ages 60 and 64 and do not qualify for most state or federal assistance programs. As a result, Brevard is experiencing not just a boom in elders, but also an increase in the number of seniors who are not covered for care. Helping Seniors of Brevard County will put safeguards in place to help finance care of the growing elder population in Brevard while allowing for flexibility of the plan as it develops.
