There are nearly 50 million American seniors over the age of 65 in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), five to 6 million seniors suffer from dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Another 20-30 million have bone and joint disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis; gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); cancer; lung disease; diabetes; and heart disease. This means that nearly three out of four seniors over the age of 65 have at least one chronic or progressive disorder that impacts daily life. Twenty-five to fifty percent have multiple chronic conditions that limit daily living activities. For too many seniors, age-related degeneration, injuries, or illness leads to a loss of independence, freedom, and a waning quality of life.
In Troy, Ohio, Comfort Keepers in-home senior care helps seniors overcome daily living challenges through personalized support plans that address a senior's unique needs, including personal care, companionship, and traditional homemaking services.
