The Peninsula, an assisted living and memory support community, is fortunate to have a long-standing relationship with the City of Pembroke Park and the Broward Sheriff’s Office in offering public safety education for residents, employees and the general public.
Each month a public service officer comes to The Peninsula to speak on a variety of safety issues and this month the topic is “Electrical Safety”.
“It’s always worthwhile to be reminded about home and electric safety,” explained Michelle Hertz, resident programming coordinator for The Peninsula. Electricity is such a necessary part of our lives, we tend to take it for granted, but using electricity safely is vitally important. Thousands of people in the United States are critically injured and electrocuted as a result of electrical fires and accidents in their own homes each year.
She added that while residents at The Peninsula have housekeeping services and maintenance to keep their residences safe as well as restaurant-style dining and three meals a day, lectures such as this are important community service opportunities.
The Peninsula is located at 5100 W. Hallandale Beach Boulevard in Hollywood and is a luxurious retirement community offering assisted living and independent living apartments and services.
The community’s separate and secured memory care residence, The Garden, is specially designed for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. The community offers a variety of private or semi-private resident suites, a grand dining room with restaurant-style service, a theater and many other common areas for residents and their guests to enjoy. Well-trained staff is accessible 24-hours per day, offering personalized care and services to the residents.
