Today’s healthcare system is more fragmented and localized than ever before. Traditionally, patients are treated for the symptoms they are experiencing at a particular moment in time.

This could be a story about the patients or residents that you care for, or your favorite aunt or uncle, brother or sister, mother or father, loving partner, husband, wife, friend—or even preparing for yourself.

If you are caring for patients, residents, relatives, or a spouse, managing falls can be a major challenge to detect, react to, and perhaps lead to some sort of preventative care. In Part 1 of this post, I shared a story about my Uncle Mike, who was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago, and we were seeing it get worse. My Aunt Judy finally checked him into a senior care center and periodically received calls that Uncle Mike fell out of the bed. It was terrible. We were feeling his deterioration with each passing day. Unfortunately passed away in early April.
As mentioned in previous posts in this series, my Uncle Mike was diagnosed with dementia a couple of years ago, and spent his last few months living a senior care center and suffering from declining health which caused a host of issues, including falls, disrupted sleep, and respiratory issues.
