  3. Prevent Senior Hospitalizations Public Education Program Launch

January 19, 2015

​​​​Most medical professionals agree that staying healthy enough to avoid a hospital stay should be the ultimate goal. That's especially true for seniors. A hospital stay may be necessary and beneficial. But if there are ways to safely avoid it, most seniors and their caregivers are all for it. To that end, some experts predict that nearly half (48.5%) of senior hospitalizations could, in fact, be avoided if proper preventative steps are taken.

The Prevent Senior Hospitalizations program provides family caregivers with a variety of resources to learn more about warning signs, risks and preventative measures that could help keep their loved one out of the hospital. Some of these resources include an interactive Hospitalization Risk Meter and a downloadable guide with detailed information around five key preventative actions.
