JOGO GoodLife

JOGO GoodLife is a structured, time-bound, home-based wellness programme designed exclusively for the elderly population. The programme's main objective is to improve their independent living by enabling easy access to healthcare screening, diagnosis and treatment of various ailments.

Older people are particularly susceptible to falls. Numerous studies have shown that implementation of 'fall prevention strategies at the community level significantly improves the quality of life and reduces fall rates. Our country lacks such avenues or programmes, but the JOGO GoodLife programme will fill this void.

Why Do You Need JOGO GoodLife?

  • 1 out of 3 people above the age of 65 falls each year
  • Older people aged 72 and above fall once every two years
  • Octogenarians (80+) are prone to falls every year
  • People aged 50 and over fall every year
  • 1 out of 5 falls results in fractures or head injuries
  • Falls cause more than 95% of hip fractures

Osteoporosis among the elderly increases the chances of fractures. Moreover, the fear of falling leads to restricted mobility, making them vulnerable to falls and increasing the risk of osteoporosis.

The risk factors are:
  • Lack of Vitamin D
  • Poor vision
  • Osteoporosis
  • Previous episodes of falls
  • Pain in the foot
  • Inadequate standing and walking balance
  • Use of medication like antidepressants and sedatives that affect balance
