OVERVIEW OF PNEUMONIA 

 Pneumonia is a common lung infection that is often overlooked as a serious health condition since its symptoms might not seem severe. It can also be confused with other conditions that affect the lungs. However, it’s the 5th leading cause of death in the US and is responsible for 1 million hospital readmissions each year. 

Seniors are more prone to developing pneumonia than younger adults, and the condition can often lead to hospital visits and lingering symptoms. An in-home caregiver can help seniors remain safe at home and avoid hospital readmission during their recovery.
