Investigation underway at Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport

Problems are coming to light at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport. Through emails and Facebook posts, we’ve heard from residents at the retirement facility who complain about substandard medical care, inadequate food and issues with other basic necessities.

Now, we’ve learned those complaints are getting a response from Washington.

WLOX News reached out to Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office. A spokesperson for the congressman says his office was made aware of the allegations late last week…

…Palazzo’s spokesperson said, “We’ve been told by AFRH that several employees have been temporarily removed and a full investigation is underway.”
