    Answered . There are statutes in Florida which carry enhanced penalties for what I will loosely call "abuse of the elderly." I suggest that you visit a Boynton Beach attorney who is a litigator and who also was board-certified in elder law to assist you (and possibly other senior citizens in your "park" who are suffering similar treatment. Good luck!

    If you think my response is the best response, it would help me if you would indicate that. Also, please note... more
