Oral Health America Launches Older Adults Campaign

CHICAGO – In recognition of National Caregivers Month in November, Oral Health America (OHA) has launched “Older Adults and their Caregivers” as part of a Campaign for Oral Health Equity.

Currently, 92% of seniors are aging in their communities with the assistance of a family caregiver, neighbor or friend who helps them carry out activities of daily living. These activities could and should include helping the older adult in their care to maintain a healthy mouth, especially given the associations between oral health and overall health.

“Older Adults and their Caregivers” addresses the many oral and overall health-related issues that older adults face. These include getting adequate nutrition, managing medications, dealing with chronic diseases and avoiding isolation.

As part of the Older Adults and their Caregivers campaign, Ivoclar Vivadent is doubling the impact of all gifts made through December 31. For more information, visit oralhealthamerica.org.
