Florida The “Other” Hollywood And A Popular Assisted Living Destination For Seniors

September 9, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

When referring to Hollywood, most people immediately think of the neighborhood in Los Angeles, California where movie stars claim their fame. But there is another Hollywood in our nation that most people have not heard of. It is quickly becoming the most popular destination for assisted living for seniors. This Hollywood city of Florida is nicknamed the “Diamond of the Gold Coast.” It doesn’t take brain science to understand why seniors are flocking to the assisted living facilities in this city. Hollywood has about 6 miles of palm shaded, sandy beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, with sunny weather most of the year round.

Most seniors prefer spending their retirement in regions which have warm summers and mild winters. In this context Hollywood, Florida is definitely a perfect fit for the elderly citizens of our nation. The city’s age demographic shows a mixed population with approximately 18% of people who are over 65 years of age or older. Most of the senior citizens have opted for the laid back lifestyle of an assisted living community. Assisted living communities provide seniors with all the recreational and medical amenities they require along with the convenience of socializing with seniors nearby.  The assisted living facilities in Hollywood have many choices to offer an exceptional, carefree, secure, and rewarding lifestyle for senior citizens. Most senior citizens have never looked back after moving to an assisted living community in Hollywood because they enjoy the lifestyle thoroughly. With Miami 18 miles to the South, Miami Beach 13 miles to the South and Ft. Lauderdale 7 miles to the North, it becomes the perfect hub for seniors who want to travel to areas nearby. Seniors can choose to run relatively active lifestyles outside of the Assisted Living Facility to visit family, friends or just see the sights.

Hollywood is such a beautiful setting with so many options for senior excursions such as taking a stroll to see the vibrant storefronts, quaint brick lined sidewalks, diverse restaurant selections and unique boutiques. The downtown area is frequently the scene of festivals, art and cultural activities, parades and live entertainment. Many assisted living facilities like to encourage seniors to experience these cultural events by arranging pick up and drop off transportation services for them. Oh and yes, the beach! After joining an assisted living community in Hollywood, seniors feel like they’re in heaven! What a wonderful way to spend retirement. If you have senior loved ones who now require assistance to carry out their daily routine it is the right time to check out assisted living communities. Assisted Living Facilities build specific service plans for their residents according to their needs, without trying to change their habits and lifestyle that they are familiar with.
