Council on Aging Receives National Recognition

Loading…

Monday, January 1, 2018

The Pitt County Council on Aging was recently recognized nationally by the National Council on Aging and the University of Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology in their 2017 web publication as one of eight best practices in home modifications.

The Council on Aging’s Healthy Aging and Injury prevention program also has received many other state and national awards relating to healthy aging.

Home modifications to reduce fall risk and to age in place are a major concern for older individuals. AARP surveys have indicated most people want to age in their own homes and communities.

More than 25 percent of people age 65 and over fall each year. According to the Centers on Disease Control and Prevention, costs for fall related injuries totaled over $34 billion in the United States in 2013. Many falls are preventable.

The CDC recommends several simple strategies to prevent falls such as modifying the home — grab bars or stair hand rails — getting regular vision and hearing exams, exercising regularly with your physician’s approval, and having your physician or pharmacist review your medications for side effects that are linked to falls.

The Pitt County Council on Aging is a private, nonprofit organization in Pitt County whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for adults by providing access to a continuum of services, programs and resources that promote healthy living and independence. For more information about any of the Council on Aging services, call 772-1717 or visit the website www.pittcoa.com.
