The CDC states falls among older adults are extremely common with an estimated 2.5 million older adults treated for fall injuries in the U.S. every year. An estimated 25,000 of those fall injuries result in death. Justifiably so, 8 out of 10 caregivers are worried about fall prevention for their loved ones.
Caring.com, a senior care organization that supports family caregivers and their loved ones, recently published a comprehensive guide dedicated to improving the lives of older adults through assistive technologies. They made it their mission to research personal emergency response systems and other assistive technology to find ones that truly enhance the lives of seniors by coupling an independent lifestyle with safety and peace of mind.
