Aging in Place

90 % of seniors report they want to age in place, but 85% of seniors are not properly prepared to age in place.

Aging in place means an older adult is making a conscious decision to stay in the environment of their choice for as long as they can with the comforts that are important to them. As they age these may include adding supplementary services to facilitate their living conditions and maintain their quality of life.

Falls have become epidemic in America. Every year approximately one-third of adults 65 or older fall in their home, and half of those over age 80 fall annually, resulting in injury, long-term disability and premature loss of independence. This is a preventable epidemic.

  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall
  • Every  19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall
  • Falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the most common cause of non-fatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults. (hip fractures and head trauma).
  • 1 in every 3 adults 65 or older fall in their home each year, and 50% of those are over 80; resulting in injury, long-term disability and premature loss of independence 
  • Falls account for 25% of ALL hospital admissions
  • Falls account for 40% of nursing home and care facility admissions
  • Among those who are admitted to a nursing home, nearly half will never return to independent living

Tips to Prevent Falls:

  • Manage chronic illnesses or conditions
  • Get an eye exam regularly
  • Stay hydrated
  • Slow transitions from rest or lying, to sitting and standing
  • Talk to physicians and pharmacists about medications
  • Stay active and exercise regularly 
  • Stop before an activity, consider whether or not it is safe, and make a plan that reduces your risk of a  fall.  Problem solve alternatives/adaptations for potentially risky behaviors
  • Identify and eliminate fall hazards in the home-have a professional assessment done- lighting, stairs, grab bars, DME, rearranging.
  • Hire help to maintain the safety of your home such as caregiver, house cleaner or maintenance team
