Details

Elderly suicide is a very serious problem. Although the elderly (age 65 and older) comprise approximately 13% of the U.S. population, they account for over 18% of all suicides. In real numbers, these figures translate into nearly 15 older adult suicides per day, or one suicide every hour and 37 minutes. Older adult suicide is often triggered by the perceived loss of control over health conditions or financial circumstances – resulting in feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. For the health care provider working with the elderly, this reality poses significant challenges, as well as significant opportunities for make a real and lasting difference. The purpose of this class is to:

  • Gain knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to care for residents at risk for suicide
  • Identify early warning signs that an older adult may be suicidal
  • Identify strategies for empowering older adults to reduce feelings of hopelessness and helplessness
  • Identify professional and community resources for suicide support
