How to avoid dangerous falls

Research indicates that over one third of seniors fall every year – and most of these falls occur in the home. Here are some helpful home tips to keep you on your feet.

  1. Remove small rugs or use double-sided tape to attach rugs securely to the ground.
  2. Invest in grab bars throughout your home, especially next to the toilet and in the bathtub.
  3. Use handrails when going up or down stairs.
  4. Use brighter light bulbs throughout your home to make it easier to see.
  5. Use a reacher to access objects in higher places.
