Facts on Health of Senior Citizens and on Emergencies

When an accident happens, the first few minutes are critical. A slow emergency response can result in physical impediment which will take away a person’s independence or worse… an unnecessary death. This is especially true for the elderly.

PRLog - Jul. 11, 2011 - ISLANDWIDE, Singapore -- Research supports the common sense notion that getting prompt help makes surviving an emergency more likely. The ability to get help also boosts the odds that a senior will continue to live independently. The longer a person spends helpless, the greater the likelihood he/she will be discharged into supportive care. For elderly people who live alone, becoming incapacitated and unable to get help is a common event, which usually marks the end to the ability to live independently.

Between now and 2030, Singapore will witness an unprecedented profound age shift. The number of residents aged 65 years or older will multiply threefold from the current estimate of 300,000 to 900,000 in 2030. By then, one out of every five residents will be a senior. The coming surge of seniors, which starts when the first baby boomers reach 65 years of age in 2012, will have tremendous effect on all parts of our society – individuals, families, communities, businesses and the government.

Even if a senior citizen is healthy, accidents at home do happen and their conditions will be made worse when they are left unattended.
