Alvin Q Taylor for PA 15th Senate


The Elderly


More  and more families are assuming the caregiving responsibilities of  elderly family members, neighbors, and friends. Issues affecting our  senior citizens include voting representation, health insurance, rising  medical costs, and increasing co-pays are draining the resources of our  most vulnerable citizens. There are loneliness and homelessness issues  in the veteran population.

Also,  overly burdensome administrative red tape in accessing Aging Assistance  programs; tax relief, independence, raising grandchildren due to family  crises and addiction, dysfunctional families; anti-institutionalization  versus staying in your own home; mobility and end-of-life decisions.  Alvin will bring new vision and solutions to these issues; with  practical insights, as he has dealt with this in the church and  community.
