Assisted Living Project EOH

Posted: Updated:

As a person gets older, they are faced with medical challenges. Like: medications, safety issues and end of life discussions. As Carla Burbidge reports in this week's Eye on Health, there's a new program designed to help.

A simple game of bingo is a learning experience for these residents at the Wellington Assisted Living Center.

Its actually called Falls Prevention Bingo. Since 1 in three adults over the age of 65 will fall, there are tips on how to make your home safer, and your body stronger. Alona Jarmin is an R-N with North Dakota Health Care Review, which is state agency that works with hospitals and nursing homes to improve the quality of health care. This current project is called TEACH.

Alona Jarmin, North Dakota Health Care Review "Teaching and engagement of adults in health care"

Alona says falls Bingo is one example of the types of events they are taking to the assisted living homes in Minot. A variety of engaging projects to provide some helpful information.

Alona Jarmin "we have a lot of lessons learned, how we can give older adults the proper message about talking the doctor, knowing medications, getting their family involved"
