Chandler Senior Demographics

In 2012, Chandler’s planning division estimated that its population was just under 240,000. The 2014 Census revealed a population of 254,000, signaling rapid growth to its population and economy. In addition to hosting numerous financial institutions, the city is an attractive destination for large technology companies such as Intel, Verizon and Microchip Technology. As its population continues to grow, more seniors are choosing the city as a retirement destination as other native residents continue to age.

About 7.8% of Chandler’s population is made up of senior citizens and this percentage is destined to grow over the next decade. To serve the needs of the elderly, the City of Chandler Community & Neighborhood Services Department maintains a senior center that offers numerous social functions and activities that can help older residents live healthy, happy and active lives as they enter their golden years. The services provided include a dial a ride program, nutrition program, crafts, computer classes, blood pressure checks, health and fitness programs, a safe driver program, bowling, bingo, bridge, scrabble, mah-jongg and more. The center is located at 202 East Boston and you can call (480) 782-2720 for more information.

How to Detect Abuse or Neglect

Our Chandler nursing injury lawyers are regularly asked about the symptoms of abuse by concerned clients. We always advise looking into an issue at the first moment something seems wrong in order to rule out abuse rather than to allow it to continue unabated. Some of the clearer signs that you should look for include the following.

  • Your loved one suddenly seems like a different person. He or she may become bitter, angry or depressed. When a caregiver is present, your loved one may also become silent or act as though he or she is afraid.
  • You notice physical marks that may indicate physical or sexual abuse. If this is the case, act quickly.
  • Your loved one develops an infection or a bedsore. Infections can be indicators of unsanitary living conditions and bedsores are one of the most telltale signs of neglect because of how easily they can be prevented.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to a medication error.
  • Your loved one suffers from malnutrition or dehydration. The symptoms that can reveal either condition include sudden weight loss, fatigue, confusion, dizziness, dark urine and fainting.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to a slip, trip or fall and you believe that insufficient supervision was provided.
  • Your loved one makes an accusation of neglect or abuse. Accusations of misconduct should never be ignored, even if your loved one suffers from dementia or a neurological disorder.
