The U.S. population is aging quickly.  In fact, by 2050, the number of people that are 65 or older is expected to double.  That means significant implications for our society and families.  Many adult children are already helping their parents either financially or with other support.  But how do you know when your parents need more help than you can provide?  And how do you get them to accept that?  While spending time with your parents over the holidays, it’s a good opportunity to look for signs that they need assistance—FirstLantic guides you on things to look for and how to approach a discussion that could be difficult. Watch for significant changes in behavior. Were your parents highly organized, and now you find bills piling [...]

Celebrating Five Hispanic Americans Who Broke Barriers

2021-09-21T11:11:14-04:00September 21st, 2021|Categories: Celebrations, Hispanic Americans, Holidays|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

September 15th to October 15th officially represents Hispanic Heritage Month or Latinx Heritage Month as it is becoming known.  The celebration was initially one week and started by President Johnson to recognize the cultural contributions of Hispanic Americans.  President Reagan later extended it to one month.  With over 62 million people now within the U.S. identifying as part or wholly Hispanic, there could not be a better time to celebrate some of the most influential Hispanics in U.S. history.  While it is impossible to pay tribute to all Latinos who have made substantial contributions, FirstLantic Healthcare wants to recognize five extraordinary people who were first in their fields and given so much to America.   Rita Moreno Rita Moreno is the first Hispanic American woman [...]

Six Lesser-known Facts about the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

2021-01-18T14:35:18-05:00January 18th, 2021|Categories: charity, Holidays|Tags: , |

On the third Monday of January each year, we celebrate a holiday dedicated to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  He is the only other American besides George Washington to have his birthday commemorated as a national holiday.  In 1983 President Ronald Reagan signed a bill that created a federal holiday to honor him.   Dr. King is inarguably one of the most influential figures in United States history.  And although revered for his commitment to Civil Rights and non-violent protests, including the well-known March on Washington in 1963, there are many other fascinating aspects about his short life that are not as well-known.   In honor of his birthday, FirstLantic shares six lesser-known facts about the iconic leader who died at only 39 years old. King entered college at [...]
