News & Updates

Fall are Preventable

Exercise regularly.  Move furniture that’s in your way.  Pick up items that are on the floor.  Keep items off the stairs.  Consider a walk in tub to ensure easy entrance and exit.  When using a ladder, make sure both feet and at least one hand are on the ladder.

Consider buying an alarm you can activate in the event of a fall.  Get up slowly when lying down or sitting, making sure that your path is free from clutter and obstacles.  Make sure items in the kitchen are within reach.  Place a non-slip mat or strips inside your shower or bathtub to help prevent falls.  Installing grab bars further decreases the risk of falling.  Use a night light in your bedroom.

Do you have throw rugs or loose carpeting? Secure the loose carpeting and use double-sided  tape on rugs so that they do not slip.  See an optometrist or ophthalmologist at least annually.

Fun Facts

Today, over 13% of the US population is 65 years or older. By the year 2030, 1 in every 5 Americans will be over 65, totaling 70 million.  For the first time in history, there will be more people of grandparent age than children and youth. These older adults can have a tremendous impact on society by choosing to be active grandparents and mentor younger generations.

Today, an American at birth is expected to live 76 years compared to 47 years in 1900 — an additional 29 years. Most of today’s grandchildren will have most or all of their grandparents in their life during part of their childhood and adolescence, and many will have surviving grandparents well into their adult years. At age 30, 75% of people will have at least one surviving grandparent.
