Date:8/29/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

Malibu Senior Center Recreation Coordinator Theresa Odello invited resource speakers for the National Falls Awareness Day next month on the week of September 22. Theresa invited Randy Clarito, Director for Business Development and Training of Caregiver Services and Home Care Inc. and BCT Group of Company and Lloyd Bartley, Meadowbrook Community Marketing Director to talk about the facts and statistics about fall and ways being applied in most senior communities to prevent fall which is aligned to this year's theme of NCOA, National Council on Aging, Preventing Falls-One step at a Time.

Falls are one of the leading causes of unintentional injuries in the United States, accounting for approximately 8.9 million visits to the hospital emergency room annually (NSC injury facts 2011). About one third of the elder population over the age of 65 falls each year and the risk of falls increases proportionately with age. For ages 80 years, more than half of seniors fall annually. These documented statistics fall short of the actual number since many incidents are unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers.

Falls are the leading cause of death due to injury among elderly, 87% of all fractures in the elderly are due to falls. Falls account for 25% of all hospital admissions and 40% of all nursing home admissions 40% of those admitted do not return to independent living, 25% die within a year. Over 60% of nursing home residents will fall each year.

The total amount spent annually on healthcare related falls is $30 billion. Medicare costs for hip fractures a s a result of falls is projected to be $240 billion by year 2040. The average cost of a fall injury was $19,440 (including hospital, nursing home, emergency room and home healthcare, physician services not included).
