Items in your home can increase your safety – or your chances of falling. During National Fall Prevention Week, consider making some changes to improve your independence and well-being.
These include adding storage to keep shoes and other items clear of pathways; being aware of uneven surfaces and eliminating things such as throw rugs; keeping frequently used items nearby; illuminating your way with night lights; adding supports in the bathroom such as grab bars, and staying safe on stairs by installing hand rails on both sides.
