Hello, Ed Grosso here.
I’m in my seventies. When I see or hear about the statistics with older people, I am motivated to do something about this The solutions are not that hard. For example, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states:
- 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.
- In 2015, the total cost of fall injuries was $50 billion. Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.
- The financial toll for older adult falls is expected to increase as the population ages and may reach $67.7 billion by 2020.
As the older adult falls is expected to increase as the population ages and may reach $67.7 billion by 2020.
This is horrible, and I want to do something about it.
WHY THIS WEBSITE
It hurts me to see these unnecessary situations. All the studies are pointing in the direction that we will be lasting longer and longer, so I believe a stronger focus on improving the quality of life is important.
This website will point out today’s solutions where we need physical support to get by. This website will also point out tomorrow’s solutions where we can strengthen ourselves
I also want to be in conversation with people who want to take more responsibility for growing older.
I enjoy growing the coaching industry by training more and more people to become coaches, to coach individuals and businesses to a higher level of development to meet the rapid levels of change and provide deeper and more advanced techniques of personal development through Radix bodywork.
Earlier I was involved in computer hardware and software design and quality assurance.
I have two children near Boston. Two step-children in Portland Oregon and one step kid in Oakland California.
I love to travel, read poetry, and lately, Tai Chi has consumed a great deal of my time.
I live on Oxford Connecticut with my lovely partner Lois and our dog Silky and the boss of the house Marmalade the cat.
