Facts on Emergencies: Research supports the common sense notion that getting prompt help makes surviving an emergency more likely. The ability to get help also boosts the odds that a senior will continue to live without an assisted living program. The longer a person spends helpless, the greater the likelihood he/she will be discharged into supportive care. For elderly living alone, becoming incapacitated and unable to get help is a common event, which usually marks the end to their ability to live without an assisted living program.
Facts on Elderly Living: As the oldest baby boomers become elderly living citizens in 2011, the percentage of people 65 and older is projected to grow faster than any other age group. 26 states are projected to DOUBLE their elderly living (65+ and-older) populations BETWEEN 2000 and 2030.
Facts on 911 Calls: Over 150 Million emergency calls are made each year in the US.
Facts on Causes of Death: Nearly 75% of all deaths in the United States are deaths of elderly living people. For many decades, heart disease, cancer, and stroke have been the leading causes of death among the elderly living alone, accounting for 70% of all deaths in this age group.
Facts on Falling: Of the 35 million Americans over 65, about 1 in 3 will fall in a given year. The elderly living are hospitalized for fall-related injuries 5 times more often than they are for injuries from all other causes. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death for the elderly living alone. 50% of people who fall require assistance from someone else to get up. After a fall or other emergency, 90% of people who get help within one hour will continue to live a life without an assisted living program, but after 12 hours without help only 10% of people will continue to live at home. Nearly one half of the elderly living community who incur a serious injury never fully recover and many lose their ability to function independently and without the aid of an assisted living program for the rest of their lives. A good proportion end up in assisted living homes, making falls and the injuries that result, one of the most substantial health threats facing elderly living adults.
FALL STATISTICS: The reality A study published in The New England Journal of Medicine titled Persons Found in Their Homes Helpless or Dead? found that 62% of people admitted to the hospital after being found in their homes following a fall were unable to return to living independently. Estimated TIME spent incapacitated | % found ALIVE Less than 1 hour: 92% 1-3 hours: 47% 3-6 hours: 25% 6-12 hours: 22% hours: 33% hours: 14% hours: 12% Greater than 72 hours: 13% In just one to three hours after the fall, more than 50% of the undetected victims do not survive.
Facts on Heart Attacks: 1.5 million Heart attacks occur in the United States each year with 500,000 deaths. A heart attack occurs about every 20 seconds with a heart attack death about every minute. About 50% of deaths occur within one hour of the heart attack outside a hospital or assisted living home. There is a only a 6% to 9% early mortality rate from Heart attack for those who survive long enough to reach the hospital. Getting to the hospital quickly is a necessity. Deaths from cardiovascular diseases in women exceed the total number of deaths caused by the next 16 causes. Costs related to heart attack exceed 60 billion dollars per year. Coronary Heart Disease is America’s No. 1 killer. Stroke is No. 3 and a leading cause of serious disability. Many strokes are preventable and treatable with prompt medical attention.
