Office of Communications

Girls, Their Mother And Grandmother

The Communications Office is responsible for educating the public about the Department’s programs and services. Communications staff helps ensure that all Department materials present an appropriately positive image of aging and a balanced representation of elders, including diversity in cultural distinction, geographic location and degree of frailty or wellness.

The Department’s audience includes Florida’s elders, caregivers, the general public, the media, professionals in the aging network, and other state agencies.
