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.

Is Someone Abusing Your Elderly Parent?

4670-ElderAbuse

Many seniors suffer from abuse and neglect, sometimes from caregivers or family members. Abuse can take the form physical, sexual, emotional, financial, or spiritual abuse.

The abuser can be a spouse, partner, relative, a friend or neighbor, a volunteer worker, a paid worker, practitioner, solicitor, or any other individual with the evil intent to deprive a vulnerable person of their resources, or merely to bully them into submission, especially in the case of those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

As the elderly become more physically frail, they’re less able to stand up to bullying and or fight back if attacked. They may not see or hear as well or think as clearly as they used to, leaving openings for unscrupulous and cruel people to take advantage of them. And sometimes the elderly can’t explain what is happening to them – often on a regular basis!

We know that neglect and self-neglect are also forms of abuse. Self-neglect happens when a senior lives in a way that puts his or her own health, safety, or well-being at risk.

The health consequences of elder abuse can be serious. Elder abuse can destroy an elderly person’s quality of life in the following ways:

  • Declining functional abilities
  • Withdrawal
  • Increased dependency
  • An increased sense of helplessness
  • Increased stress
  • Worsening psychological decline
  • Premature mortality and morbidity
  • Depression and dementia
  • Malnutrition
  • Bed sores
  • Death

How can you stop this? How can you know it is happening? How can you prove it? IPS Safety Inc. supplies caring friends and relatives of the elderly with a digital clock that incorporates a hidden camera. It’s quick to set, dependable, up and easy to use. And nobody will suspect this innocent clock of containing a camera!

The V26 Silent Witness Clock With Hidden Video Camera comes with a 32 gig SD Card included.

No WiFi is required, and it records up to a week with Automatic Motion.

It’s a small clock: 4.08 inches x 2.3 inches. It tells time, date and temperature.

Use a USB cord (included) to provide power or utilize the rechargeable battery (included).

Full operating instructions are included. One year warranty. Telephone support.

Receive a US$200.00 USD worldwide Hotel Discount Card and 1 Year warranty included with this purchase.

IPS Safety Inc. – Providing Certainty for Seniors in a Sea of Insecurity

Why Our Superior Senior Care System Works

12080112_1678186975735068_2393371567364688275_o (1)

I received an urgent phone call from a neighbour last night. Her mother had fallen and couldn’t get up, and my help was needed to help the daughter lift her mother into a chair. The mother has dementia and has just been released from the hospital. Her daughter arrived to find her on the floor two hours after her fall.

She asked her mom why she didn’t hit the SOS button on the gadget she was wearing, and her mom replied that she had forgotten how to do so.

Here’s our IPS Safety Inc. response to the situation:

First, if Mom did hit the SOS button on that device she had, it would have gone to a call centre and someone would have asked, “Are you alright?” Then this elderly lady with dementia and an accent would have had to try to explain her situation.

With our Guardian V10 device, the device would have detected a hard fall and automatically texted and then called the first person on the list, for example, her son, providing her exact location, and given him the opportunity to immediately speak to his mom through the waterproof device, like a phone. If he didn’t answer, the second person would be texted and called, and then the third, or 911.

The same would have occurred had she hit the SOS button.

AND if Mom wanders outside and gets lost, we can track her exact whereabouts in real time via the Guardian V10!

But what if the fall hadn’t been hard enough to activate the automatic fall mechanism, and she couldn’t remember to hit the SOS button on the Guardian? We have that covered, too. For a small, one-time investment, the family could easily place an HD camera with night vision in each of the areas she frequents in her apartment. Up to twenty chosen people could view the same camera on their phones in real time. I the family members regularly checked their phones, they would have seen Mom on the floor.

As I was leaving, a caregiver arrived. We also provide a camera hidden in a small digital clock so that they can check up on her and avoid any abusive situations.

We also provide outside cameras. Call me for more information on how to protect your elderly loved ones.

WARNING: Before You Buy Surveillance Cameras for Your Home

aaaaaa

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?

20160912_110002

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.

SALES POWER IDEAS for You

14666209_10157509471640207_7030249762056526431_n

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.
