For every step we take, someone aged 65 or older is falling. As the aging population grows, so will the number of falls. By 2030, there will be 72 million older adults—experiencing a combined 52 million falls every year. Already, the CDC has declared falls a public health issue. And the health system, senior living operators, adult children, and seniors are working in silos to try to solve this $51-billion-a-year problem, with costs extending beyond financial expense to include massive physical and emotional tolls, too.
That’s why SafelyYou is unveiling data from our inaugural report, The State of Falls, a comprehensive study based on a survey of more than 400 executives and care providers across senior care and adults 42 and older. We assess approaches to fall management, impact of falls to communities, and how fall risk shapes the emotional—and financial—health and wellness of families.
Join our special webinar on September 22, the first day of fall and Falls Prevention Awareness Day, as our panel of industry experts provides unique perspectives and commentary coupled with powerful insights and selective strategies to move beyond the status quo, and begin the work of bringing the health system, operators, adult children, and seniors together to break down silos and misconceptions around falls and build transformative change.
