According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, falls are the leading cause of injury among the elderly. When an elderly person falls, they are more likely than younger people to end up in the hospital and often, to come back home unable to perform their normal activities. Having a home care aide can help prevent these fall emergencies. If a fall has already occurred, home care may be an appropriate intervention during recovery. Just because you cannot walk up a flight of stairs unaided, does not mean a move to a facility is required as a permanent decision. Long-term care insurance can fund home care that will allow you to remain at home where you are most comfortable, with safety and independence.
People who suffer from addiction often have one or more accompanying medical issues, which may include lung or cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, and mental disorders. Imaging scans, chest X-rays, and blood tests show the damaging effects of long-term drug abuse throughout the body. For example, research has shown that tobacco smoke causes cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, blood, lungs, stomach, pancreas, kidney, bladder, and cervix. 19 In addition, some drugs of abuse, such as inhalants, are toxic to nerve cells and may damage or destroy them either in the brain or the peripheral nervous system.
