Seniors who desire to age in place after a fall are often pressured into getting a wearable device, such as a button that hangs around the neck, or a watch. The challenge with these devices is that they are not practical for the Seniors because, the fact is, most refuse or forget to wear them, they don’t put them back on when walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night, or it they fall and land on the device, as often happens, they can’t reach it. Additionally, most seniors feel comfortable in their homes and do not see any danger walking from room to room.
But just a walk to the bathroom can result in a fall. The fact is most falls actually happen in the home. That fall can lead to many new challenges that ca family concern and the senior to lose confidence.
1 out of 3 seniors falls each year
Almost 50% of seniors who fall do not tell their family members
2 out of 3 people who fall once will fall again within 6 months
Frequent bathroom trips may indicate UTI which can lead to falls
What can cause a fall?
The home not being adjusted to fit a senior's lifestyle
Change in medications or miss management of medications
Isolation and loneliness
Based on these facts, it should be easy to get a senior to put on the device. Not the case. Studies reveal that only 20% of people owning medical alert devices actually wear them regularly.
