Senior Advocate

Southeastern Virginia’s Senior Advocate is a magazine devoted to issues of importance to Virginia Seniors.  To read the online version click on the picture at left.

Senior Advocate was established in Virginia in 2002 by Stephanie Smith. Smith’s experience in caring for her grandmother after she developed Alzheimer’s disease sparked her interest in issues involving the needs of older adults. Her hands-on experience providing care management for seniors and their families made her aware that these families were often ill-informed about resources available to help them.
