Stamford Senior Demographics

Stamford’s proximity to New York places it within New York’s greater metropolitan area and it is a benefactor of the Big Apple’s strong financial district. Of the cities surrounding New York, Stamford is home to more large corporations than all others and houses multiple Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies as well as the financial divisions of many more. This has provided the city with a strong and stable economy and is why the city has sprouted in size from 122,000 to over 128,000 over the last six years.

The senior population of Stamford is considerable; representing 13.1% of the total population with many Baby Boomers preparing to join their ranks. The Stamford Senior Center seeks to provide ample opportunity to the aging population to remain active and social with programs that include regular games, fitness programs, education, trips and assistive programs that will allow some residents to delay the need for ongoing nursing care by helping them lead independent lives.

Common Symptoms of Abuse or Neglect

Detecting the signs of nursing abuse can be difficult because they often mimic neurological or psychological disorders that elderly patients are at a high risk of experiencing. It is important to note, however, that your loved one is not likely to experience any sudden or drastic changes in personality, temperament or health without reason. If you notice any of the following, we can help you get to the root of the problem by investigating the matter.

  • Your loved one experiences paranoia, mood swings, emotional outbursts, anger or depression.
  • Your loved one loses weight without reasonable explanation or shows signs of dehydration such as darkened urine, fatigue, dizziness and weakness.
  • Your loved one develops bedsores or existing sores worsen as though they’ve received no attention or notice.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to medication errors.
  • Your loved one develops an infection or catches a serious communicable disease.
  • Your loved one is injured in a trip or fall accident.
  • Your loved one displays signs of physical, sexual or verbal abuse. These symptoms include bruises and other physical marks, silence in the presence of caregivers, paranoia, sudden changes in temperament and angry outbursts.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
