When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Aging individuals face multiple threats. The Centers for Disease Control revealed that ¼ of elders will slip and fall each year, and a single fall increases the chances of future falls. The fatality rate from falling down among retirees grew thirty percent over the last 14 years, and accidental poisoning is another problem this group faces since many are taking multiple types of medication, and sometimes get them confused.
Retirees are often a target of criminals because they are perceived as being weak. These crimes include burglary, violent assault, and scams where criminals will knock on the doors of retirees looking to steal their financial info or sign them up for bogus services or products.
