The Senior Vote Holds Power! With the elections around the corner, it’s important to get our seniors out to vote. Every vote count’s, especially the one of an elder. Why do you ask? “Social Security constitutes the majority of a senior household’s income for 53% of married couples and 74% of unmarried persons, according to the Social Security Administration”.  When you combine a person’s health and livelihood in a vote, voting becomes much more than a mere exercise in civic duty; it can make a substantial difference in a senior’s quality of life. Without our seniors being able to receive benefits, the cost of healthcare would be out of reach for many. Also, most of our seniors voting is a sense of duty. They feel a sense of patriotism and voting becomes both a privilege and duty to them. Furthermore, it’s important for all of us to go out and vote, to see a difference. Let’s make sure to help our seniors get out there and vote as soon as possible.

 

An appropriate voting place would be to host at an assisted living community. This voting location is not only convenient for seniors but also gets external people into your building to network with the healthcare community!
