When you are sick or injured, there is nothing you want more than to be at home. Being in familiar surroundings close to loved ones and friends will make you feel more relaxed and assist in getting you on the road to recovery much faster than if you were hospitalized.
The usual aging process is often associated with many of the following functional changes:
- decline in muscle strength
- decrease in oxygen capacity
- gait instability
- reduced bone density
- decrease in appetite
- urinary incontinence
As we age, hospitalization can often result in functional decline despite any cure or repair of the condition for which we were admitted. Quite often, hospitalization results in complications unrelated to the problem that caused the admission and for reasons that are unexplainable and avoidable. Hospitalization and bed rest contribute to:
- enforced immobilization
- reduction of blood volume
- accelerated bone loss
- hearing and visual sensory deprivation
