Studies show that 70% of seniors who are 65 years old will need some long-term care assistance and 30% will require care for more than 5 years. This responsibility is overwhelmingly assumed by family members such as children and spouses. Even with good family support, many will need additional assistance from professional caregivers to care for their loved ones.
The older a person gets, the higher the risk they have of falling; each year, one in every three adults who is 65 or older falls. Sometimes these falls are cause by simply slipping or losing your balance (like any regular fall), but sometimes they’re caused by other factors.
