Florida Senior Day 2020 – Jan. 29, 2020

January 29, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Florida Senior Day 2020

Florida Senior Day 2020 – Capitol Courtyard – Tallahassee, FL. 10:00 am – 2:30 pm

Join us at the State Capitol to celebrate and advocate for Florida’s seniors. More than 90 statewide partners invite you to join us for a complimentary luncheon, entertainment, interactive partnership booths, free health screenings, and other special programs.

Meet Rex the Rescue Pup at the Scent Evidence K9 booth Jan. 29, 2020 from 10:00 am-2:30 pm at the Capitol Courtyard in Tallahassee, FL. Scent Evidence K9 CEO, Paul Coley, and team will bring a few of our star bloodhound pups in training to promote Missing Person Awareness and teach families and caregivers how bloodhounds like Rex can help find seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia who are at risk of wandering and going missing. Paul will also have his life-saving Scent Kits® on hand so that families and caregivers can learn how to protect those who wander by preserving their unique scent. Having a Scent Kit® prepared in advance gives K9 responders the best possible scent article to search with. Studies show that 3 in 5 of those with Alzheimer’s Disease will wander.

Scent Evidence K9 and The Alzheimer’s Project are partners in the Bringing The Lost Home Project that was passed into law by Florida Gov. Rick DeSantis in June 2019. The bill provides K9 and Missing Person training and Scent Kits to at-risk families in Bay, Seminole and Sumter Counties. Learn more about the Bringing The Lost Home Project HERE.
