Who Are Elder Care Services for?
Today adults are living longer than ever before.
In fact, adults age 85 and older are the fastest growing segment of our population and according the US Commerce Department Bureau of Census, will account for 1 in 4 seniors and 5% of all Americans by 2050.
With that longevity, we are challenged with more chronic illness and a decline in functionality.
- 1 in 5 seniors have 5 or more chronic conditions
- 2 in 5 seniors will require long-term care
- Half of Americans age 85 and older have Alzheimer's Disease
These limitations can wreak havoc on the quality of life of those experiencing this decline and the support systems around them.
- One in five seniors who are discharged from a hospital are rehospitalized within 30 days
- One in 3 are rehospitalized within 90 days.
- Seniors account for 12% of the U.S. population but more than one-third of hospitalizations and almost half of total hospital costs.
Professional elder care services can greatly improve health outcomes, alleviate stress and increase function.
It is now recognized that when patients with complicated medical, functional and cognitive conditions receive care coordination in the home by specially trained geriatric care managers, hospitalizations and emergency room admissions are substantially reduced.
