San Jose Senior Demographics

For the first 150 years of its existence, San Jose was no more than a small farming community, but it was home to burgeoning growth following the return of soldiers from World War II. It continued to grow and annex land through the 1950s and 1960s, but it wasn’t until the city invited numerous technology and electronics companies that it experienced its most rapid growth and earned the distinction of the Capital of Silicon Valley. It now boasts a population of over 1 million people and roughly 10.1% of its residents are senior citizens. There are many more residents who are over the age of 55 and rapidly reaching the age of retirement as well.

Seniors who are looking to maintain a healthy and active social life can take advantage of the numerous services offered through the Active Adults 50+ program offered through the San Jose Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department. Seniors can sign up for these programs through centers located throughout the city and activities, classes and services include dances, bingo, nutrition programs, classes and other social events. Seniors can also receive free blood pressure checks at any senior center.

How to tell if Your Loved One is Being Mistreated

Our San Jose nursing home injury lawyers have handled many cases involving neglect, abuse and negligent behavior; and the victims are often too afraid to come forward on their own. This makes it important to be aware of the signs that your loved one is not being treated well, because you cannot always wait for him or her to make an accusation of abuse. You should speak with legal counsel to determine whether you have the grounds to launch an investigation if you observe any of the following.

  • Your loved one has developed bedsores. These are easily prevented and often a sign that a nursing facility’s staff is unable to pay attention to every patient’s needs.
  • Your loved one develops an infection. Bedsores can be worsened when bacteria reach the site of an open wound and poor sanitation and hygienic measures can spread microbial organisms throughout a facility, leading to severe infections and medical complications.
  • You notice that your loved one’s behavior has changed suddenly. He or she may become quiet in the presence of caregivers, become irritable or depressed or experience drastic mood swings.
  • You notice physical marks on your loved one’s body. The most common areas these marks appear are on the wrists and ankles, but they may appear elsewhere.

In addition to helping you recover the compensation your loved one is entitled to for his or her injuries, we can also assist you in finding a qualified care facility that will offer the quality care that your loved one deserves.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
