The Salvation Army Orlando Women’s and Children’s Shelter, is a 62 bed facility providing safe emergency shelter to women and their children experiencing homelessness. Through partnerships with Housing and Urban Development and the Veteran’s Administration, they are able to offer supportive programs to assist families in the transition back to stable housing, including special assistance for our central Florida female vets.
Since the start of the COVID pandemic, the shelters have witnessed a huge decline in donations of essential items. Our community is trying to maintain stability themselves, therefore are unable to provide to those who are most vulnerable. Our world is starting to see a new face of homelessness and The Salvation Army continues to adapt on a daily basis. The Salvation Army has had to increase its budget to make sure there is funding available to ensure their clients continue to have a clean, safe place to sleep, hot meals every day and access to the resources needed to help them regain stability.
The Florida Nurse Practitioner Network is honored to sponsor an opportunity to donate to this worthy local cause at our upcoming Annual Conference, to be held LIVE at the Orlando World Marriot on August 26th – 28th, 2021. We will be accepting new and packaged items at our donation table throughout the conference. Please refer to the list attached, provided by the shelter, for the most needed items.

This presentation will provide an update to gerontological advanced nursing practice and to showcase evidence-based practice pearls for APRNs working with older adults. Older adults 65-years and older account for 30-40% of primary care visits. By 2050, the older adult population 65 years and older is expected to grow to nearly 90 million. By 2060, nearly one in four Americans will be 65 years and older, the number of 85-plus will triple, and the country will add a half million centenarians. Older adults carry a significant portion of the chronic disease burden with 60% of older adults having at least two chronic conditions. Four chronic conditions-heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes—cause almost 2/3 of all deaths each year. At the same time there are a growing number of older adults who are living longer and who are living healthier than previous generations. This presentation will focus on the impact of age-related change on common chronic conditions in older adults and provide clinical pearls.
