Elderly Hospital Care
Did you know….
More than 13 million senior citizens in this country are hospitalized every year. And some studies show that hospitals are not equipped to handle their unique needs. In some cases, older patients are discharged in worse shape than when they were admitted. Interrupted sleep, unappetizing food and days on end in bed can have detrimental effects on a senior patient’s physical and mental well-being. Young people can bounce back but those conditions can cause lasting damage to older folks. So what’s being done about it? Not much…..check out our blog on this page for more information. The next time your elderly loved one is hospitalized, you may just look at their treatment a little differently.
