Fall Prevention Program For Seniors
Did You Know that Falls Affect 1 in 4 Older Americans?
Falls can be life-changing, especially as we grow older. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans, with one out of every four Americans aged 65 or over falling each year. Even more startling is that the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention sites that every 19 minutes, an older person dies from injuries incurred from falling. Unfortunately, as a person ages, the risk of breaking a bone increases especially if they have osteoporosis, a progressive disease that causes bones to weaken and become extremely brittle. In severe cases, just by coughing, sneezing or even a mild bump can cause a fracture. Suffering a severe fall can cause an older adult to lose their independence, as the recovery process may take a long time.
The HomeAides is familiar with the physical as well as the emotional and social ramifications that can occur after a fall. For many seniors, even the thought of falling can induce fear and trepidation, causing them to avoid leaving their house. When this happens, they miss out on social engagements, family gatherings, and other enjoyable activities. As a result, they may experience increased anxiety, depression and isolation.
