What to Do When Aging Parents Refuse Help

We have all met a senior who simply refuses to be helped. Whether being polite and holding a door open or offering to carry groceries for them, it seems there are at least a few seniors who would rather be left alone. As seniors age it becomes more common for them to be stubborn and refuse help from anyone, and this is especially true when it comes to aging parents.

Importance of Fall Prevention

Senior Fall Prevention

One in four seniors ages 65 and older fall each year. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of five falls causes either broken bones or a head injury. Over 800,000 patients per year are hospitalized as a result of a head injury or hip fracture from a fall. Even worse, falls are a leading cause of fatal injury, causing 27,000 deaths annually.
