Take care of your elders

Take care of your elders. The falls and lack of love and kindness will kill them faster than a complicated flu, or COVID-19.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.

Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments annually, including over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths.

If you are not allowed to visit your love ones in rest homes, per government directive, most likely they will die from depression.

If you are proven not to be infected with the COVID-19, you should have the right to visit your love ones. The total ban on visitations is cruel and extreme.
