At CAC-Florida Medical Centers, we have leveraged the many years of service and interaction with our adult patient population to gauge, research and understand their unique needs and concerns. We have taken this valuable feedback and have worked within our community to identify individuals, organizations and institutions that are in a unique position to assist and educate our senior population about issues that are important to know and be prepared for.

Partnering with the Alliance for Aging has provided the seniors of Miami-Dade County with informational lectures regarding healthy living, for example many of our physicians conduct educational seminars about Diabetes, Alzheimer, Fall Prevention just to name a few.
American Red Cross
Partnering with the Red Cross has provided our seniors with vital information in preparing for Hurricanes in our area as well as defining specific plans and procedures to follow in case of an evacuation.
The Red Cross partner program has also brought our senior valuable information with regards to safety from fires at home due to kitchen appliances left unattended, smoking at home, placing candles in close proximity to clothing.
University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
