Seniors, Preventing Falls and iFALLCEPT

Seniors, Preventing Falls and iFALLCEPT

December 29, 2018

 

LauraJackson_FINAL.jpg

Laura D. Jackson, BSN, MPH and Co-Founder of iFALLCEPT, a company that has developed the first iOS app available to the public to help stop falls, a deadly killer among seniors that is often addressed to late, joins eHealth Radio and the Senior Care and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Laura D. Jackson discuss the following:

  1. Tell us a little bit about your background and how it lead into creating the first in-home fall safety app in the App Store?
  2. What are the statistics surrounding falls in the home? Is it really that large of a problem?
  3. So how does iFALLCEPT work?
  4. What are some recommendations you can provide to our listeners immediately to help with fall prevention in their homes, parents, relatives or friends?
  5. Who's your target audience and what has been the experience so far?
  6. What are the advantages of this app?

Laura D Jackson as co-founder of iFALLCEPT leads outreach and public awareness on Senior falls and prevention.  Laura brings with her a Bachelor of Nursing and a Masters in Public Health. She successfully created and managed a thriving home health agency for nearly 20 years, Patient Care Services Inc (PCS).  

PCS was a certified Medicare home health agency that employed hundreds of healthcare workers including Nurses, Aides and Therapists and served thousands of patients. PCS was awarded the highest credentials from JCAHO auditors and was recognized for providing quality care to thousands of aging seniors and the disabled.

Awareness and advocacy of Seniors and their healthcare has long been Laura's passion.  

Laura found herself not only a senior advocate through her business but also found a passion through her aging parents.  Her medical background had proved invaluable many times when it came to the care her own parents received in the healthcare system.

Launching iFALLCEPT was a culmination of a long history in healthcare and her passion to continue to make a difference in seniors’ lives.  iFALLCEPT was a labor of love, but unfortunately, Laura’s father was one of the many senseless deaths due to falling. Too many of us hear too often, “after he/she fell, it was all downhill from there”.  Now that Laura is a senior herself, many of her friends have now experienced devastating falls.

Falls are a complex problem, but simple steps and simple habits can make a significant impact.  From daily exercise and medication review to your home fall risk assessment, each senior can make a difference and impact their own lives through the choices and habits they make. Smart and Healthy living comes from simple habits like an afternoon walk to regular use of products like iFALLCEPT that put the power of healthy living in your hands. Starting today brings a healthy and happy tomorrow.
