你们当中有多少人在照顾老年人,或在找照顾老年人的钟点护理员呢?这不是件容易的事。照顾老年人要注意很多事情,同时也会面对许多的挑战。其中一项大挑战便是预防老年人跌倒。照顾老年人时虽然还有许多其他事情要注意,但是老年人意外跌倒对许多人来说是一场噩梦,是许多人所担心的一个持续困境。那么我们到底该如何预防老年人跌倒呢?

我们知道,跌倒和由此产生的并发症对于老年人来说可能是非常危险的,但也是最普遍的风险因素之一 - 老年人不小心跌倒实在是太容易发生了。 根据(National Center for Injury Prevention and Control)的数据,“每三个老年人当中(年龄在六十五岁以上)每年都会有一位跌倒,但是还不到一半的人数会对提供他们医疗服务的机构谈及.” 所以这个问题不仅普遍,同时也被隐藏住了。这让护理人员(Caregivers)在防范可能会发生的事情方面处在一个困难的处境。

在十九世纪晚期之前,失智症一直是一个伞式术语,其中囊括了许多类型的非相关精神疾病,并且那时候对于医学的认知也相当有限。这一领域内医学知识的进展杂乱无章,都是在对为什么“失智症”这同一个病因下会产生不同的发病情况进行研究。这本身就令人遗憾。更别提与失智症相关的社会耻辱感,以及人们认为失智是自然变老所带来的错误后果了。
