Falls Are Serious and Costly for Seniors

This is the post excerpt.


2004 - 2013, United States Unintentional Fall Death Rates per 100,000 All Races, Both Sexes, Ages 65+  Source: www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars 2004: 41.15, 2005: 43.12, 2006: 44.8, 2007: 48.47, 2008: 50.91, 2009: 51.54, 2010: 53.76, 2011: 55.36, 2012: 56.07, 2013: 56.96

My wife’s friend fell in her apartment and couldn’t get up or reach her phone. Two days later, her friend realized that something was amiss and called the Emergency Services, who had to get in through the third floor window to rescue her. She was hospitalized for ten days, and the doctor said that one more day would have killed her.

My wife fell on the curb on her way to Aqua Fit.  She couldn’t get up! She didn’t have her phone with her. She had to wait until a caring passing motorist and his wife stopped and helped her.

  • One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury.
  • Each year, 2.5 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries.
  • Over 700,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture.
  • Each year at least 250,000 older people are hospitalized for hip fractures.
  • More than 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling, usually by falling sideways.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Adjusted for inflation, the direct medical costs for fall injuries are $34 billion annually. 

What Can Happen After a Fall?

Many falls do not cause injuries. But one out of five falls does cause a serious injury such as a broken bone or a head injury. These injuries can make it hard for a person to get around, do everyday activities, or live on their own.

  • Falls can cause broken bones, like wrist, arm, ankle, and hip fractures.
  • Falls can cause head injuries. These can be very serious, especially if the person is taking certain medicines (like blood thinners). An older person who falls and hits their head should see their doctor right away to make sure they don’t have a brain injury.
  • Many people who fall, even if they’re not injured, become afraid of falling. This fear may cause a person to cut down on their everyday activities. When a person is less active, they become weaker and this increases their chances of falling.

WARNING: Before You Buy Surveillance Cameras for Your Home


People need cameras for various reasons – at home, in the office, keeping an eye on Granny, employees, the kids, or the dog, seeing what’s happening outside and when you’re not around. So where will you buy these cameras?

You have three options – call your local alarm company, buy from a big box store or online and install yourself, or buy from IPS Safety Inc. Let’s objectively evaluate the three; perhaps you will learn something that will assist you in your choice.

Buy from an alarm company

You may even get a “free” camera with “free” installation, however, you will sign a monthly contract that locks you in for years. You will be owned and controlled by the company, and you will pay for that camera many times over. And just try moving to another company! In addition, you will have a workman in your home, pulling wires through holes and making it difficult to remove, move, or replace that camera.

Buy from a Big Box Store or Online

You may think you’re getting a good price, but you may be in for a nasty surprise. Why? When you’re struggling to read the instructions, which are usually badly translated from Chinese, or when you have a problem connecting or installing your camera, who do you call? How do you get help? Chances are, you’ll end up sending it back or standing in a long line to return it. Irritation and cost. Like buying one-ply toilet paper instead of two-ply in order to save money: expensive, frustrating, time-consuming.

Buy from IPS Safety Inc.

When you go online to our site and buy cameras, it is a one-time purchase cost. No hidden costs, no monthly fees, no installation. WiFi, 2-way voice, memory, view and manipulate from your phone. Unplug it and move it around at will.

With your purchase, you will receive:

  • A free, one-year warranty
  • An immediate 5% discount when you use this Code: s1c3
  • A $200 VIP CLUB Card that allows you a $200 discount on hotels worldwide and never expires
  • A video like the one below that shows you how to easily set it up and use it within minutes
  • PLUS we’re always just a telephone call away should you get stuck!

Easy decision, isn’t it?

Worried Your Retirement Savings and Pensions Will Be Enough?


I’m a Senior – an elderly Canadian. I’m 64. My wife is 67. Many of our friends are older than we are.  We see the desperate state that many find themselves in. As we age, healthcare gets exponentially more expensive. Drug costs are soaring. Wait times in hospitals are getting longer and longer. Because of the drug addicts abuse of painkillers, many of us are now prescribed inadequate dosages for the pain we suffer.

And most of us are very worried that our savings won’t be adequate. We can’t get jobs or do the things we used to do. The increasing influx of “refugees” into our country under Trudeau simply means even fewer resources for us. This is not some political statement or projection; we see it happening every day.

A shocking, recent Broadbent Institute study reveals the truth about the inadequacy of Canadian Seniors’ savings and the dire financial future we face, “the overall median value of retirement assets of those aged 55 to 64 with no accrued employer pension benefits (representing 47% of this age cohort), is just over $3,000.

We know that:

  • 64 per cent of retirees find it hard to strike a balance between enjoying retirement and making money last.
  • More than half (59 per cent) are worried about making their retirement fund stretch for their remaining years.
  • If retirees came into an unexpected sum of money, more than one third (33 per cent) say they would pay off debt and 16 per cent would invest it, suggesting that money is an overriding concern.

This constant money worry results in stress and further weakens our immune system and relationships.

BUT THERE IS HOPE. Our company is a licensed, insured, debt free, incorporated business based right here in Canada. We are a Member of the Consumer Technology Association. We specialize in helping Seniors to live safe, secure lives using our proven products, and we provide a system for Seniors to make extra money.

This is not some Network Marketing scam and you can participate without buying anything or spending a dime if you don’t want to. Contact me, and let’s talk. We have solutions.

Did you know that the average person needs seven exposures to a new idea before accepting that idea? Yes, Spaced Repetition works. And unless you’re using Operant Conditioning and Spaced Repetition on your marketing, you’re missing out.

ALSO, when you consider the fact that our lives are constantly in flux and changing, regular exposure to your target market to your products, services, and offers makes a whole lot of sense. That’s why regular, continual, persistent advertising and exposure is so important. And it’s why smart salespeople (and recruiters) make more money.

Let’s consider how Operant Conditioning and Spaced Repetition can be used in a simplified form to boost your sales. The former is easily accomplished with basic Positive Reinforcement: an unexpected, a free gift along with a purchase, positive responses to their attention, complaints, or participation, regular communication and special offers to customers, special discounts for bulk buys, and so on.

But I would like to focus on Spaced Repetition and  Changing Circumstances. Spaced Repetition is explained thus by Wikipedia:

“Spaced repetition is a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned material in order to exploit the psychological spacing effect. Alternative names include spaced rehearsalexpanding rehearsalgraduated intervalsrepetition spacing, and repetition scheduling.”

Through regular exposure to our advertising and education about ur products and services, people learn more and become more amenable to buying. The Marketing Rule of 7 states that a prospect needs to “hear” the advertiser’s message at least 7 times before they’ll take action to buy that product or service. Unless those messages continue to be interesting, changing, and acceptable, THEY WILL BE REGARDED AS IRRITATING SPAM. So beware of sending out exactly the same message every time. Change your bait (message/offer/benefits ) regularly to reach different fish under different circumstances and with different needs.

As peoples’ circumstances change, their needs and priorities change. They may not require your products or services today or this month or even this year, but over time, they may desperately need them, so you need to be around and easy to find, or your competition will get the sale. Perhaps they didn’t buy last month, maybe they weren’t ready to join your sales team last week, but TODAY they are ready. Don’t discard non-buyers; treat them well. Stay in touch.

Bottom Line: Advertise regularly, using different attention-getters, different benefits, at different times of the day and week. Offer differing incentives, too. Make your adverts interesting and informative, and use video as much as possible. If you’re using an Auto Responder, beware of too frequent and too long. Variation, fun, interest, and positioning yourself as an expert in your field are essential.

Reward customers and stay in touch. Referrals will be forthcoming when requested if you look after your customers and reward them for their loyalty and regular purchases. Reward referrals, too.

Our Salespeople and Distributors understand the important of providing excellent service to back up our premier products.

Three telling Quotes:

Harriet Tubman: “If I could have convinced more slaves that they were slaves, I could have freed thousands more.”

Vincent Van Gogh: “Do not quench your inspiration and your imagination; do not become the slave of your model.”

Joseph Campbell: “I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.

Too many people have bought into the idea or model that it is normal and natural for most people to slave in a job – indentured servanthood – and that being an entrepreneur is only for the few. They have succumbed to the programming of Cultural Marxism to the extent that they are led by the nose to financial slaughter.

When we were all farmers and hunters, we were entrepreneurs. We fended for ourselves and created our own income. And the only thing stopping people from earning whatever they want is not their academic “qualifications,” age, experience, licenses, or education, but themselves. There is no excuse why a reasonably intelligent person who is determined to afford the lifestyle they want cannot, in a Capitalist society, do so.

We become, as Van Gogh said, slaves to our preconceived models, our doctrine, our dogma, of what is possible, what we are capable of, and how much we can earn. We are unaware that we are slaves to our overseers and jailors in the prison camps and chicken coups we call “jobs.” We have devolved from proud individuals into sheeple, run ragged by the police state’s sheepledogs, our inspiration and dreams quenched.

At any time, we can Break Free from our conditioned state of scarcity and serfdom and soar to heights previously unimagined when we realize what is available to us. There is no excuse for the average, mildly intelligent person to remain mired in seething debt, worn out, with little hope and fewer dreams. The American Dream has been held underwater and water boarded for so long by the cultural Marxism and its Liberal disciples that people have begun to think that dreaming is sinful, pointless, a thing of the past.

Your daily struggle to survive can be replaced with an exciting journey to reach all your goals, to live a life on purpose, to make all your dreams come true. And it’s not too late for you to join us. We know where you’re coming from. We have constructed a vehicle that has all the necessary components to take any motivated, self-disciplined person anywhere they want to be. This is not some Network Marketing snake oil pitch. We’re not asking you for any money. Talk with us about this.

Do You Have Elderly Parents Living Alone?


You want your elderly parent or parents, who live alone, to be safe and secure. Perhaps they have a bit of dementia. You worry about them when you’re not with them. Driving across town to visit them and check up on them is not always easy. Are they taking their medication?

What if they wander and get lost, or fall and can’t get up? Are they alright? What if they need you and can’t remember your number, or don’t have their phone with them? We have solutions for you that are priceless, that will provide peace of mind and security.

Now you and your siblings can see them, speak with them, and hear them at them at any time on your smartphone or iPhone via cameras, night or day with our see-in-the-dark, plug and play, Wifi, cordless cameras with two-way voice/sound.

Your parent can also wear the waterproof, easy to use, The Guardian V10 Tracker / SOS / Fall Device so that, should they fall, it will send an instant text message with GPS coordinates, followed by a phone call to the first person you nominate. Should that person not answer, it will automatically notify the second person, and then the third person (or 911.) (Not a kid in a call center somewhere.)

If your parent falls, is afraid or in trouble, they could also push the SOS button on their device for instant, two-way communication with 911 or a person you nominate (the second person on your list).

And if your parent wanders or gets lost, and doesn’t push the SOS button, simply notify us and we will track them and send you a map and coordinates of where they are.

The Danger of Aging


Aging takes time. That sounds ridiculous, I know, but it does happen gradually. Old age creeps up on one. You see a picture of an old friend and you can’t believe how he’s aged, then you look in the mirror… But there is a problem with this slow aging process – and it is dangerous.

We get used to moving more slowly, being more patient, sleeping in the afternoons, relying on medication, pain. We become accustomed to deteriorating eyesight and hearing. Our conversations with our old friends start to revolve around our aches and pains and operations and medications. And the ladies dye their hair and try to look a little younger… But we often don’t realize how vulnerable we are becoming.

The older we get, the more likely we are to fall and incur serious injuries, get lost, suffer from dementia, get mugged, get bullied by family members, caregivers, even other seniors. The aged are prime targets for burglaries, financial scams, and theft. But because we age slowly, we often don’t realize it or deny it.

At 63, I have to remind myself that I’m not as young and strong as I used to be. I have to arrange my lifestyle according to my age. My Dad, at the age of 80, said that in his mind, he was still 18. Many of us can relate to that. And that is often the cause of physical activity that is more appropriate for much younger people and often results in many years of pain from injuries.

So when my company offers devices that can assist, protect, and enhance the safety and security of older people, many deny that they need it. Those who DO realize that they need it are usually their caregivers and adult children, seniors’ homes senior centres.

Give yourself, your family, and your organization the gift of increased control and peace of mind and save time, knowing that you can more effectively monitor and assist the elderly that you care about. Help them by caring enough to take action.
