Tallahassee retirement community Westminster Oaks is opening its doors to Jacksonville evacuees from Hurricane Matthew. Forty-seven assisted living residents from Westminster Woods, a sister facility in Saint Johns County, arrived Thursday morning, along with twenty staff members and their families.

Thousands of the Big Bend’s most vulnerable seniors relied on a network of volunteer and professional care givers – and sometimes each other -- to weather Hurricane Hermine. Some of the planning worked, some didn’t.

One of Tallahassee’s most vulnerable communities waited three days to get power restored after Hurricane Hermine, and an industry advocate isn’t the only one concerned.
