Have You Been Involved In Nursing Home Abuse?
Florida is home to many retirees. What is less well known is that many people who retire to Florida eventually need living assistance and move into Florida nursing homes and assisted care facilities. With more than 4.8 million residents who are 60 years old or older, Florida ranks first in the nation in percentage of citizens who are elders, according to the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. Inspectors with the department’s Long-term Care Ombudsman Program performed annual assessments and visitations in more than 6,000 nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult family care homes in 2013-14.
The Ombudsman program says it investigated more than 8,860 complaints from residents of nursing homes and similar long-term care facilities in our state from 2013-14.
