a-1 home care los angeles live in caregiverAre you worried about the cost of 24-hour senior care?  Think about the costs of medical care if your elderly loved one were to fall.  The following statistics were derived from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2016):

  • Every year, one out of three seniors fall, but less than 50% of them report the fall to their doctors
  • 20% of falls result in serious injuries, such as broken bones, hip fractures or traumatic brain injury
  • Over 2.5 million seniors are hospitalized for fall injuries each year
  • The direct medical costs for fall injuries total at least $34 billion, and hospital costs account for two-thirds of the total medical costs

An elderly person with impaired vision, balance and coordination problems, spinal degeneration, weak muscles and other conditions is prone to fall.  The risks for falling increase greatly if seniors live alone.
