Lifestyle Media Group Chairman receives award from United HomeCare

Lifestyle Media Group Chairman, Gary Press, has been selected to receive the Media Service Award for United HomeCare® (UHC)’s 2021 Claude Pepper Awards.

The late Senator Claude Denson Pepper was a beloved public servant who tirelessly championed causes on behalf of the elderly, disabled and the poor. He successfully advocated for the passage of the Older Americans Act of 1965.

“This signature legislation, helping older Americans to age with dignity in the comfort of their home with the care and support services they need, has proven to be most important in 2020, especially during the pandemic,” says Carlos Martinez, President & CEO of United HomeCare in Miami. “It is still true today that to have quality of life in our later years of life, often requires a helping hand, frequently more than family members can provide physically or financially.”

For the past 25 years, United HomeCare has celebrated Claude Pepper’s legacy by recognizing individuals and corporations who have demonstrated leadership and compassion for the elderly and disabled. The honorees have inspired others through their actions and are committed to making South Florida a better place for all.

“United HomeCare is an outstanding and unique home health and community care organization,” Press says. “As a non-profit, their care is paramount and provides more than 17,000 hours of care each week. I am very humbled to be honored with the Claude Pepper Award by such an outstanding organization.”

United Homecare made this announcement during its Virtual Prelude event held on December 10, 2020, with the generous sponsorship support of Florida Power & Light / Next Era Energy. The Honorees will receive their Claude Pepper Award LIVE during United HomeCare’s 26th Annual Dinner and Claude Pepper Awards on Thursday, May 20, 2021, at Jungle Island’s Treetop Ballroom in Miami Beach.

Congratulations to our own Gary Press for being selected as a 2021 Claude Pepper Award Honoree.
