Arlington Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Arlington Nursing Home Injury AttorneyThe Arlington nursing home abuse attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have many years of experience litigating on behalf of the many victims of neglect and mistreatment in nursing facilities. In recent years, there has been an epidemic of nursing abuse cases and this will have a profound impact on the Arlington community in coming years as more residents reach the age of retirement. In order to help prevent further instances of abuse, we have compiled the following information about the worst rated nursing centers in the area so that you are able to avoid placing the people you care about into an environment that is not healthy or suited to their needs.

Arlington Senior Demographics

Over a period of five years, the population of Arlington has sprouted from 207,600 to 216,700 and the distribution of age among its residents presents unique challenges in the years to come. While only 9% of Arlington’s population is over the age of 65, an additional 22% are between the ages of 45 and 64. This means that thousands of residents will be reaching the age of retirement in the upcoming decade and as residents continue to age, they will inevitably require assistive care.

Residents that are 55 years of age or older may take advantage of numerous programs offered by the Arlington County Parks & Recreation Department meant to enrich and prolong the lives of seniors. Passes only cost $20 a year and allow members to access six senior centers, a host of fitness classes and sports activities, travel opportunities, social clubs and assistive programs.
