It’s the Thanksgiving season, and once again, like you, we find ourselves counting our blessings. What are you thankful for?

 

We know many seniors who are very thankful for continued good health. Staying independent and living life fully is easier when you’re feeling good, and when you have good mobility. It’s something that nobody can take for granted, especially as we age.

 

At MedHab, we spend a lot of time thinking about good health and good mobility. In fact, one of the best ways we know how to help seniors is by helping to prevent falling.

 

Falling is one of the biggest factors leading to Assisted Living. Does this surprise you? It shouldn’t. Falls can have very serious consequences, and it happens far more frequently than one might expect.

 

The statistics are sobering. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA):

 

  • Every year, 1 in 4 Americans aged 65+ will experience a fall.
  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the Emergency Room for a fall.
  • Falls in adults aged 65+ are the leading cause of head injuries and broken hips.

Fortunately, we're beginning to understand more about how to prevent falls. We know that it's never too early or too late to start taking preventative action. And we know that the number one best way to prevent falls is exercise. But not just any exercise. The best exercises for fall prevention help improve balance, improve flexibility and range of motion, and improve strength. That's why MyNotifi is pre-set with 38 exercises designed to enhance range of motion of the upper and lower extermities, as well as to increase overall strength. This will help stop preventable falls. And if a fall does happen, MyNotifi can detect it and alert the caregiving network.

This year, give thanks for the things you hold close to your heart. And know that we’re working tirelessly to help you have another wonderful year with good health, peace of mind, and good mobility. Learn more about how MyNotifi® can help your family.
