Hollywood, FL is one of the last South Florida cities to maintain a historic flavor. Sandwiched between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood was founded in 1925. The city maintains a booming downtown area, which is accessible after exiting Sheridan Street or Hollywood Boulevard. Continue east and you will run into Hollywood Beach, which has a vibrant boardwalk area. For these reasons, Hollywood, Florida remains an attractive city for retiring snowbirds and elderly Americans.
Protecting Hollywood’s Senior Citizens
17.3% of Hollywood’s citizens are seniors above the age of 65. Due to this disproportionately large senior population, Hollywood government officials put safety measures in place to protect its elderly residents. The local hospital, Memorial Regional, is set up to screen for nursing home abuse injuries. Boulevard Heights Community Center has a Senior Wellness program to care for at-risk elderly patients. Yet many of Hollywood’s elderly require a higher level of care, like a nursing home or assisted living facility. Sadly, not all Hollywood, FL nursing homes play by the rules. Many Hollywood facilities are notoriously understaffed with under-trained nurses. So how do you know if your loved one was abused or neglected inside a Hollywood nursing home?
