Founded in 2000, Florida Pioneer Network’s statewide coalition of organizations and individuals has worked together toward person-directed long-term care. The term we use is “culture change” because this movement is focused on changing the culture of long-term care settings, making them places where individuals want to live and work.
Florida Pioneer Network has been instrumental in providing culture change educational programs, coaching projects, information and resource connections and advocacy leadership throughout Florida.
We facilitate a unique program of the Area Agency on Aging for Central Florida, also known as the Senior Resource Alliance, which provides office and fiscal management support for an administrative fee. From time to time, FPN has been supported by foundation grants for specific projects. Special recognition is accorded the Winter Park Health Foundation and the Retirement Research Foundation for important financial support.
