Livable Communities making aging easier

IOWA CITY– Livable Communities for Successful Aging, the Johnson County initiative that’s at the forefront of advancing issues on successful aging, held a Fall Celebration on Sept. 23 in Iowa City.
From 2000 to 2030, the county is expected to more than double the number of citizens over age 55, so it’s good news that Livable Communities is leading the charge to organize and develop welcoming programs for seniors.

Sure Steps to decrease injuries and high cost of falls

JOHNSON COUNTY– A year ago, my mother fell and broke her hip. The accident was painful for her and scary for my sister and I. Luckily, it wasn’t very serious, just a tiny chip. As we waited for the diagnosis, I researched hip fractures and found falls can be the first slippery step in a downward decline.
People who fall and break bones can become dependent on others for food and doctor visits. If confined to bed or unable to get around, overall health can quickly deteriorate when someone’s seemingly small injury affects general health, mobility and independence.
