They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic boynton beach historical society gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Boynton Beach, FL is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

The Always Best Care Difference

Since 1996, Always Best Care has provided non-medical in-home care for seniors to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle as they get older. We are proud to have helped more than 25,000 seniors maintain higher levels of dignity and respect. We focus on providing seniors with the highest level of in-home care available so that they may live happily and independently.

Unlike some senior care companies, we genuinely want to be included in our clients' lives. We believe that personalized care is always the better option over a "one size fits all" approach. To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs. That way, they may provide care accordingly without compromising their wellbeing.

The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life.

“Steve and Claudia at Always Best Care Senior Services were just awesome in how they provided at home care for my mother Carmen. Starting with the initial consultation by Steve to learn about mom's personal care needs to the follow-up visit of a registered nurse to the eventual placement of a compassionate caregiver; every step of their service was well thought out and they truly delivered on providing a level of care for mom that exceeded our families (and mom's) expectations. It can be very nerve racking to find and leave your loved one with a caregiver but this company gets that and they were just fantastic. Thank you Always Best Care!”

“I have been utilizing Always Best Care Senior Services for 2 years to care 24/7 for my elderly parents. I am very pleased with their services. The Owners and Office Staff bend over backwards to make sure that there is always coverage, to alert my parents Caregiver Team of any requests that I make, to advise me when there is an issue with my parents or their dog. The Caregiver Team working with my parents are all compassionate and caring, knowledgeable and skilled. Sadly, my Father passed away in the fall of 2020. Each of their Caregivers, the Owners and the Office Staff expressed to me that they would like to attend his memorial service when we are able to have it. During the weeks he was slipping away, the Caregiver team not only took care of my parents, they looked after me, gently reminding me to eat, rest or take a break. They truly care not only for my parents, but for all our family. I can’t begin to express what a comfort it has been to have them caring for my parents, especially during the pandemic when visits are prohibited. They are my eyes and ears. Working intimately with my parents, the Caregivers are very tuned in to even subtle changes. If you are in the market and looking for a senior services/home health care company, I strongly urge you to reach out to Always Best Care Senior Services. You’ll be happy you did.”

Heidi R.

“If you want quality care for yourself or your loved ones, Steve and his time are the best, don’t waste your time looking elsewhere. As an estate planning attorney, I have recommended clients to Steve who have been very happy with his team. Steve and his team went above and beyond for one specific client of mine that had a very complex situation, and I am eternally grateful to them. I only hope I can continue to work together with him - Steve and his team are dedicated to making sure you are comfortable, happy and safe. My favorite part about Always Best Care is that all of their staff are TRAINED EMPLOYEES WITH CONTINUING EDUCATION - NOT INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS!”

Aldo C.

“Always best care is a top notch senior services company. They go above and beyond with their clients and treat them as if they are family.

Ryan N.

Steve and his nurse came to our home, assess the situation, and set up a schedule to accommodate our needs. I would highly recommend them to any family or friends in need of their services.”

Claudine P.

“Steven and his team are superior in caring for aging friends and family. The most important thing is having people who you can trust with your family.”

Allison T.

“Steve and his team will take superior care of your loved ones.”

John D.

“Steve Snell and Staff of Always Best Care Senior Services have been amazingly responsive, helpful and worked diligently to make sure my clients needs were met! Can't praise them enough. The case was staffed immediately and overseen at all levels. Thank you for Always providing the Best Care!”

Karen G.

“I have worked with, and explored working with, various agencies and registries in the Palm Beach County area. I am picky. Always Best Care is qualitatively a notch above every other organization I've encountered. Responsive. Amiable. Professional. The aide, Islande, who has worked with my mom is top-notch for our needs. And . . . I have no doubt Steve (the agency's owner) and his staff would strive to find someone else, if it hadn't been a fit. If you are looking for Nursing Care, I strongly recommend giving Always Best Care a chance. BTW: It is important to understand that working with an Nursing Agency (like Always Best Care), means the staff are employees, not independent contractors (as they are when working through a Nursing Registry). An Agency is vested in having good employees, and a good agency wants you to be happy. But even all Agencies are not created equal. I worked with one (Alternative Health Care) where aides did not always show up! That was painful and incredibly stressful, and the manager and other higher-up staff didn't give a hoot.”

Liz S.

“I wish there were more that five stars. I can not say enough about the experience we have had in working with Always Best Care Senior Services. Not only were they extremely receptive to our needs, available immediately to every call, text or email, compassionate and kind...every single employee was better than the next. My Dad's recent death and my mothers recent surgery (with complications) requiring extra care was a traumatic time for our family. The care she received was beyond skilled and professional. We knew she was in trusting, caring hands. She was happy. I have recommended ABC to others and they have had the same experience. Do not hesitate to reach out to them if you are in need. I highly recommend them. I know I will be reaching out to Steven and Claudia the next time I am in need. My family and I are extremely grateful.”

Donna H.

“Fabulous experience with Always Best Care. Treated my 90 year old Father in Law with dignity and respect. We actually had fun with his aides and they were helpful and kind.”

Alicia B.

“I am very glad to have chosen ABC Senior Services to get us through a very difficult time when my parents finally reached the end of their independent lifestyles at age 96 and 97. Scheduling was difficult and sometimes changes were made last minute, but ABC came through as well as could be expected. Despite losing his wife of 37 years, my father is currently doing very well back north in an assisted living facility. Thank you ABC for the compassion you expressed throughout the 4 months you were there for us.”

Rob C.

“Always Best Care is a great company who goes above and beyond for their clients. My mother fell at my brothers home in Connecticut and I called Steve Snell for some guidance. Even though Steve is in Florida he was able to get my family connected with a representative in Connecticut immediately. Thank you Steve!”

Mike B.

“I highly recommend Always Best Care Senior Services if you have a loved one that needs personal care.”

Melanie T.

“Dori, is such a wonderful person and makes such an impact on everyone she is involved with.”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Boynton Beach, FL?


Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it is especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age.


When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.


The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.


At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one gets older, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Home Care Boynton Beach, FL
Respite Care

Respite Care Services

According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy nearby activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress reduces the risk of caregiver burnout. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local Prime Catch or visit Harvey E. Oyer Jr. Park, don't feel bad. Doing so is great for both you and your loved one.

At the end of the day, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

Benefits of Home Care in Boynton Beach, FL

Always Best Care in-home services are for older adults who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that friends and family cannot provide.

Here are just a few reasons to consider senior care services from Always Best Care:

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit - something that is unavailable to many older people today.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a strange nursing home, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:

How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?

A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, then, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old.

With the help of elderly care in Boynton Beach, FL, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors.

Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.

For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like a nursing home. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier and more affordable to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, seniors who age in the comfort of their homes can save thousands of dollars per month.

In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, are often less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

 Elderly Care Boynton Beach, FL

Affordable Care

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

If your loved one qualifies, Medicaid may help reduce in-home care costs. Review your FL's Medicaid program laws and benefits, and make sure your senior's financial and medical needs meet Medicaid eligibility requirements.
Attendance and aid benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.
Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.
Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.
Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.
 Senior Care Boynton Beach, FL

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers.

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Boynton Beach, FL understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

Assisted Living Referral Services

While it's true that many seniors prefer to age at home, sometimes in-home care isn't the best fit. For those seniors and their families, choosing an assisted living facility makes more sense. Unfortunately, finding the optimal care facility is easier said than done in today's day and age. That's when Always Best Care's assisted living referral services begin to make a lot of sense.

Assisted living is a form of housing intended for seniors who require varying degrees of medical and personal attention. Accommodations may include single rooms, apartments, or shared living arrangements. Assisted living communities are typically designed to resemble a home-like environment and are physically constructed to encourage the independence of residents.

Respite Care Boynton Beach, FL

At assisted living communities, seniors receive help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also benefit from coordination of services with outside healthcare providers, and monitoring of resident activities to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Caregivers who work at assisted living communities can also provide medication administration and personal care services for older adults.

Other services offered within assisted living communities can include some or all of the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Recreational Activities
  • Social Outings
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Family Visitation
  • Personal Care
 Caregivers Boynton Beach, FL

At Always Best Care, our representatives can match your senior's emotional, physical, and financial needs with viable assisted living communities nearby. Results are based on comparative data, so you can select the best choice for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with local senior living communities to gain valuable knowledge that we then use to help seniors and their loved ones make informed decisions. This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided. Because Always Best Care is compensated by these communities, we provide senior living referral services at no extra cost to you.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Courtyard Gardens Senior Living
  • Sonata Boynton Beach
  • Grand Villa of Boynton Beach
  • Oasis at Boynton Beach Assisted Living
  • Summers Rain Assisted Living Facility
  • The Club at Boynton Beach
Home Care Boynton Beach, FL

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

 In-Home Care Boynton Beach, FL

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Always Best Care Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way


A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive


Discuss payment options and help coordinate billing with your insurance provider


Our caregivers are trained to spot changes that clients exhibit, like mental and physical decline. As your trusted senior care company, we will constantly assess and update your Care Plan to meet any new emotional, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator.

New Boynton Beach Italian restaurant offers scratch-made, fine-dining quality fare

As they prepared to open Tavolo in Boynton Beach on Dec. 2, owners Leonard and Sherri Mello were focused on bringing the same high-quality, fine-dining caliber food they serve at their two Rhode Island locations to South Florida and do it at a price that wouldn't break the bank.

Veterans in the restaurant business, the couple opened the first Tavolo in Smithfield, Rhode Island in 2005 and the second a few years later in Warwick, about half an hour south of there.

The couple has homes in both Rhode Island and South Florida and splits time between both. The restaurant is in the well-worn path of snowbirds. Leonard said he's already had "regular customers from up north that have popped in to the new restaurant."

More:Bucket list: 55 best must-try things to do, hidden gems in Palm Beach County

Leonard described the menu as "upscale casual," saying they work hard to put a "good product on the plate, but ... keep the prices reasonable."

Located off of Jog Road, Tavolo, which means 'table' in Italian, took over the space formerly occupied by Arrabiatas.

Leonard said the spot had a good demographic, excellent accessibility and it was good for families. Now they are working to carve out their own culinary niche in the area, he said.

One thing that sets them apart is that nearly everything at Tavolo is made in house from scratch. This includes the sauces, salad dressings, pastas and more.

One item not made in house is the signature pasta: the wagon wheel rigatoni. That's not to say it's store bought or made by a nearby third party. No, it is made from scratch in one of their Rhode Island restaurants and flown down fresh every week.

With a creative culinary team led by chef Gary Small, Tavolo already has several dishes that have become local favorites. These include their braised beef short rib, which is served on the bone with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, baby carrots and green beans with a demi glace; the wagon wheel rigatoni Bolognese; and the pan seared salmon served with black bean edamame salad, whipped avocado and charred poblano butter.

Other dinner entrees include eggplant rollatini, osso bucco, linguini & clams, stuffed Atlantic cod and zuppa de Portuguese.

Tavolo also offers pizzas including the margherita; the grilled chicken with basil pesto, parmesan, shredded mozzarella and chopped tomato; and the Italian grinder topped with prosciutto, soppressata, salami, capicola, hot peppers, shredded provolone and fresh lettuce.

Leonard said that they were incredibly fortunate with their culinary team. He said chef Small was impressive from the start and was able to take instruction and create the dishes here exactly like their restaurants in Rhode Island. Leonard added that the staff's talent runs so deep that "we have sous chefs that should be chefs."

He said he and his wife Sherri like to go out to eat with their three children as a family and he wanted the restaurant to be accommodating to families as well as couples and singles. He didn't want people who enjoy fine dining to feel like they had to take the kids to one restaurant and then go to another by themselves another night, he said.

More:South Florida Fair is offering up an ocean-themed fun time in 2024 with music, rides and more

A certified sommelier, Leonard can help guests choose the perfect wine to accompany their meals. Though open less than two months, Tavolo is continually expanding its selections.

Prefer a beer to go with your meal? No worries as there are dozens to choose from at Tavolo. These range from classics like Heineken, Coors and Stella Artois, to some linking to their New England roots like Whalers Rise Pale Ale, Foolproof Porter, Clown Shoes Clementine White Ale, Wachusett Blueberry Ale and Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale all brewed in either Rhode Island, Massachusetts or New Hampshire.

Finishing off an evening (or lunch) at Tavolos could not be sweeter with a dessert menu that includes cold fusion gelato, sorbet, bread pudding, vanilla bean creme brulee, affogato and more.

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Boynton Beach is the third largest city in Palm Beach County and it's growing.

"As the development happens in most cities, it becomes harder and harder to find parking to drive around," Marcia Levine said.

However, help is on the way to reduce traffic in Boynton Beach.

Mayor Ty Penserga came up with the idea for the rideshare program called Coastal Cruiser, which debuts Saturday.

The service is Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. All rides are available on-demand, and need to be booked via the Ride Circuit app. The Coastal Cruiser fleet will feature all EV vehicles – two Kia Niro sedans and two GEMs, including one ADA accessible vehicle.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at p.m. Saturday at the Centennial Park & Amphitheaterat 120 East Ocean Avenue. The ceremony will coincide with the Boynton Beach Spring Market.

"We've got a parking problem; we've got a traffic problem," he said. "Let's find a solution, let's get people moving and so this is that solution."

The Coastal Cruiser by Circuit will be available for residents and visitors. The environmentally friendly, all electric vehicles will cover areas from East Ocean Avenue, Seacrest Boulevard to Federal Highway. It will also drop you off and pick you up at the beach.

Zone 1 will encompass a portion of the CRA area, including city hall and municipal building, Boynton Harbor Marina, and businesses and restaurants. Zone 2 will be designated to transport passengers to Oceanfront Park for access to beaches.

Part of the city's big motivation with starting the program is helping those who live in the northeastern portion of the city, which is considered a food desert.

"Right now, they have no access to healthy food," Penserga said. "But with this one dollar ride we can get them access to all of the grocery stores and retailers all around the area."

The city is able to charge only a dollar because local businesses like The Butcher and The Bar can pay for advertising opportunities on the vehicles to offset the cost of running the program.

"This four-block strip here from the Intracoastal to just past the railroad tracks there's about 30+ small independent businesses that would love to have a little bit more noise made about them," owner Eric Anderson said. "I think this is one of many ways this can happen."

Levine said with Coastal Cruising she won't have to drive much.

"We can now get around town, because it's not always easy to get a ride and we need transportation," Levine said.

Fares start at just $1 per rider for Zone 1, with rides in Zone 2 $2 for the first rider and $1 for each additional rider. To celebrate the launch, community members who download the Circuit app will receive their first two rides for free during the first 30 days.

Bethesda Hospital East could sell a Boynton Beach office complex to an industrial developer.

The City Commission will consider a new site plan with a distribution center for the 30.7-acre property at 3800 S. Congress Ave. on Feb. 6. It’s owned by the hospital, which is part of Miami-based nonprofit Baptist Health South Florida.

The Viewfinder: Memorial Cancer Institute opens in Broward County

The property currently has a 125,281-square-foot office/medical office complex that’s home to multiple tenants, including Bethesda Hospital’s Women’s Health Service and the Bethesda College of Health Sciences, which is also part of the hospital. The facility was built in 1970.

“The existing building is aging, and the existing use is no longer the highest and best use for the property,” Bethesda Hospital’s law firm Dunay Miskel and Backman stated in the application.

"This site housed administrative services that have since been relocated to the Bethesda Hospital East campus," said Michael Maucker, a spokesperson for the hospital. "The site is under contract to be sold to Foundry [Commercial."

Under the new site plan, the property would be redeveloped by Orlando-based Foundry Commercial with two warehouses for a combined 457,026 square feet. The developer is seeking a waiver to reduce the amount of parking from the standard requirement of 914 spaces to 462 spaces. There would be 20 electric vehicle chargers.

The site plan by Boca Raton-based Arcadis shows warehouses of 223,249 and 233,777 square feet, each with 32-foot clear height.

A representative of Foundry Commercial couldn’t be reached for comment; it already has the Boynton Beach site listed on its website under the name Bethesda Industrial Center. Foundry is one of the largest industrial developers in Florida.

According to the fourth quarter report from Colliers, the distribution warehouse vacancy rate in the South Palm Beach Market – from Boynton Beach to Boca Raton – was 4.2% and the average asking rent was $16.83 per square foot. There was negative absorption of 73,117 square feet in that submarket during the fourth quarter, but only 25,434 square feet of distribution warehouse under construction. Industrial rents have increased throughout Palm Beach County in recent years.
