Falls Prevention Awareness Day
How Having Home Health Care Insurance Can Keep You At Home
Did you know 1 in 4 Americans age 65+ fall each year, with over half of falls occurring at home? Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for older Americans. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury. Additionally, falls contribute to over 40% of nursing home admissions.
Falls can end up being extremely costly— both in dollars and in quality of life.
September 22nd is National Falls Prevention Awareness Day, and organizations all over the country are doing what they can to bring awareness to this issue and offer their support.
The good news? Our team at Senior Financial Group can help you overcome the risk and injury of a fall! Here’s how we can help:
In the event of illness or injury, where would you prefer to rehabilitate? At home or in a nursing home/rehab facility?
Answers may vary, but a majority of our clients would prefer to rehab from the comfort of their own home. With the Standard Savers Advantage – Home Health Care Insurance Plan, the choice is yours! This plan can help you afford to receive the best possible care in the place you want to be. Plus, you can receive immediate benefit with its Medication Cost Reimbursement. This plan pays for itself when considering this reimbursement.
Whether you are recovering from a fall, a stroke, chemotherapy treatment or lung disease, Standard Savers Advantage will always bring you home.
Our team is excited to offer you this life-changing product. Give us a call at 865-777-0153 or email us to schedule an in-home appointment or phone consultation to discuss how you can protect yourself and your loved ones in the case of a fall.
