Avoiding opioid dangers in seniors


The opioid epidemic may bring to mind younger people, but unfortunately, older adults have been affected by this national emergency, too. Residents in independent living and assisted living communities can be in danger of developing an opioid addiction due to their increased risk of falls and other injuries. It’s critical, therefore, that senior living operators be aware of the potential for addiction and develop a plan to mitigate the risk.

Learning objective: Attendees will be able to describe the opioid epidemic, analgesic use and common risks of opioids in older adults.
