Purple Ribbon Task Force
On August 6,2013, the State of Florida released the Final Report of the Purple Ribbon Task Force detailing a state report and plan for dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementia’s. The eighteen Task Force members, including our own Scott Solkoff, were appointed by Governor Rick Scott and former Senate President Mike Haridopolis. The law required the Senate and Governor’s office to agree on one Elder Law Attorney and we are proud that Scott Solkoff was nominated and ultimately appointed. The Task Force met for over a year and dealt with many aspects of dementia including how state laws and public benefit programs affect dementia patients and their families.
