It is extremely important to take medications exactly as prescribed - " the right time, the right dose and of course the right medication. Seniors may have compromised cognitive ability or impaired vision and these factors can contribute to medication error. Plus, some medications make seniors susceptible to falls, as dizziness, confusion and impaired motor coordination are all associated with medications for:
- Blood pressure
- Other neurological conditions
In fact, falls are the number one safety issue seniors face. For people over the age of 75, right around 25 percent of fractured hips lead to death by complication within six months of injury. So senior assisted living in senior living communities, senior assisted living facilities, nursing homes, adult group homes and retirement communities really can provide much-needed safety measures.In addition to medication errors, falls can be attributed to:
- Poor balance
- Poor eyesight
- Cluttered living space
Assisted living can never promise to eliminate falling, but it can reduce risk factors and provide 24-hour care in the event of a fall.
