Tender Hearts@Home-logo_finalFalling. It’s one of the most dangerous events in a senior’s life. 70 percent of all accidental deaths in people over the age of 75 are due to falls. 40 percent of all nursing home admissions can be attributed to repeated falls that occur in seniors’ own homes. These appalling statistics and many others prompted the United States Congress to create the Elder Fall Prevention Act of 2002. It states that ” a national approach to reducing elder falls . . . is needed.” One local company is responding to that call to action.

Tender Hearts at Home Senior Care, a local family owned & operated senior care company is embarking on a community-wide effort to raise awareness of the senior fall issue and teach fall prevention strategies. To accomplish this they are performing free fall prevention seminars for various senior, civic and church groups throughout the Cincinnati area. The company’s Owners/Directors Jody & Dan Lynch call it a mission. And they are pretty passionate about it. “Do you know that 25 percent of seniors who suffer hip fractures die within 1 year of that injury? Seniors are losing their lives to this problem. But the good news is most falls can be prevented. And our Fall Prevention presentation explains exactly how to do that.” Jody Lynch said.

 Jody Lynch learned about Fall Prevention from her association with The Senior’s Choice, Inc, an international member network of independently owned companion care companies. Steve Everhart, President of The Senior’s Choice, Inc. said, “I believe that for seniors, remaining independent in their own homes begins by keeping them on their feet. We are thrilled that Jody has become a Fall Prevention Specialist and is taking this program home to their friends and neighbors in Cincinnati. Everhart continued, “Jody’s efforts will go a long way toward helping seniors remain independent as long as possible.”
