Exercise Tailored for Later Life Can Reduce Nursing Home Admissions

Fears of being placed in a nursing home preoccupy a supermajority of older adults as in surveys about their course of aging they consistently ranked memory loss, financial insecurity and losing independence as their top three concerns. Yet, after age 80, the risk of being placed in a nursing home increases significantly. Seniors of advanced age experience what is termed “functional aging”, that is an inevitable, progressively declining continuum in functional ability from having a stable capacity to perform daily activities through a state of physical vulnerability (influenced by cognitive loss) in which the person is losing independence. At advanced ages, some caregiver support becomes necessary for many, and for some, a nursing home admission.

“Observation Status”

An ongoing challenge for the elderly is the handling of their visits to a hospital emergency room. Many seniors visit an emergency department (ED) and, despite hours or in some cases days of monitoring and treatments received in what appears to be an inpatient bed, they come to learn that they were never admitted inpatient, but rather, were placed on “observation status,” pending a decision to admit, which never materialized.
