With around 3.94 million people, or 20.9%, of people in Florida speaking Spanish at home, it is vital to guarantee there is not a language barrier – especially when it comes to senior living. In an active living facility, we want ourselves or our loved ones to feel that they belong to a community and aren’t just another resident. At Eastside Active Living, we pride ourselves on having a multilingual staff who focus on providing the best care for our diverse group of residents. Here our experts discuss the benefits of joining a Spanish-speaking senior living community.
Benefits Of Spanish Speaking Senior Living Communities
South Florida’s communities link the past and present, as the original inhabitants learned to speak Spanish long before English. As we have the third-largest Latino population in the United States, we must respect our Spanish speaking seniors and rich Latino heritage. Not only does Eastside Active Living have a multilingual staff, but we also have a multilingual community, which allows for our residents to continue to connect with their culture. Some of the benefits of joining a Spanish speaking living community include:
The medical requirements of our seniors vary greatly. Whether you or your loved one are entering our assisted or independent living programs, the residents’ customization of care is our top priority. When residents can confidently express their needs and medical issues in their own language, they are much more assured that they are receiving the exact care they need.
Again, Eastside Active Living has a diverse community of residents with varying levels of medical issues. For those suffering from memory issues, having Spanish speaking staff members and community members is critical. Many patients who could speak English but know Spanish as their native tongue often forget or have a weakening grasp of English. Our Spanish speaking staff is available around the clock to ensure memory loss residents receive the specific care they require.
No matter where we are in life, seniors deserve to feel that they belong in the community. At Eastside Active Living, our Spanish speaking staff can better communicate with the residents, which allows for mutual empathy and trust. Spanish speaking residents also feel more of a sense of belonging as they can communicate with residents who share the same interests.
Eastside Active Living is found in beautiful Hollywood, Florida, which has its own unique Spanish-influenced events and activities to offer. For example, our community is home to the Hollywood Salsa Fest, where you can enjoy live performances and dance to clave, guaguanco, and rumba! Eastside Active Living is conveniently close to Hollywood Beach with six miles of gorgeous beaches and the historic Broadwalk for those looking to enjoy the sun and sea. Our grounds are located near golf courses for those who enjoy sports and close to Downtown for fantastic dining and shopping.
