- Senior adults age 55 and older
- Social Isolation
- Cognitive Impairment
- Physical Impairment City of Galveston At Libbies Place a secondary prevention is hand hygiene.
Due to age and disease related cognitive impairments the participants need continual reteaching about personal hygiene each time they use the bathroom to help lower infection rates. Primary Quality of Life Most older adults want to remain in their communities as long as possible. Unfortunately, when they acquire disabilities, there is often not enough support available to help them. States that invest in such services show lower rates of growth in long-term care expenditures.
