Anaheim, California (PressExposure) February 07, 2012 -- Pacific Coast Home Solutions shared today shocking senior care cost statistics, while offering an affordable alternative to the unpredictable rising costs.
Data indicates that 1 of every 3 senior citizens in the United States will fall annually. Of that number, at least 50% will fall again within the same year. 87% percent of all fractures in people over the age of 65 years old are caused by a fall. The bathroom is the room that accounts for the greatest number for falls in the home.
These bathroom falls result in loss of independence and dignity. Perhaps most tragic is the loss of the person's mobility and sense of well-being. A fall can leave an elderly person in chronic pain, with permanent disabilities, and limited physical activity. Once the physical activities have been limited, a person looses muscle strength and flexibility.
Preventing accidents and making the lives of the elderly and disabled easier with simple modifications to in-home bathing is not only a concern to the elderly and disabled, but an important consideration to their children, other relatives and care-providers. People 65+ represented 12.9% of the 2000 U.S. population, about 1 in every 8 Americans. By 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice the 2000 number according to the Department of Health & Human Services Administration [http://aoa.gov/aoaroot/aging_statistics/index.aspx].
Anyone who has ever assisted a senior citizen in bathing will tell you that getting the person into and out of the tub safely is the most frightening aspect of the experience for both the elderly person and the care-provider. With minor modifications, the bathroom can offer peace of mind for aging family members and keep them physically active and independent for a much longer time.
Pacific Coast Home Solutions now offers an affordable alternative; Senior Walk-In Tubs. At an average realized cost of $15 per day compared to an average cost of $152 per day for basic In-Home care, and an average cost of $116 per day for Assisted Living - Pacific Coast Home Solutions can help save money for seniors and their relatives, prolong their quality years, and help keep them safe along the way.
