Renaissance Grants $3,000 to the Florida Dental Association to Present Oral Health Workshops for the Vulnerable Elderly

C. "Improving oral health can prevent complications due to chronic diseases such as diabetes as well as helping to prevent aspiration pneumonia, thus improving quality of life. With this in mind, Renaissance Health Service Corporation fully supports the Florida Dental Association's efforts to educate the caretakers of the elderly on the importance of oral health."

Many people 65 years of age or older have at least one chronic health condition and/or limited access to care, making oral health care issues complex. Challenges affecting vulnerable elders' ability to attain oral health care include a lack of financial security, decreasing quality of life and general health, physical limitations, and limited independence and support from the community. Older adults also face a variety of special oral health challenges, including root and coronal caries, periodontal disease, tooth wear, oral cancer, or complications from prescription and over-the-counter medication.

Rep. Alan Hays (R-Umatilla, Fla.), who also donated funds to this program, said "Our senior population is frequently afflicted with chronic diseases or physical limitations that have adverse effects on their oral health. This, in turn, is detrimental to their general health. Many of these seniors have taken good care of their oral health in their younger years and we need to make every reasonable effort to help them continue through life with good health."
