Fall Prevention…

Every year one in three older Americans fall, resulting in hip fractures, broken bones, and head injuries. If you are caring for an aging loved one, it is important to “fall proof” your home. To make your home safer, you can:
-Remove clutter or slippery carpets.
-Improve lighting. Install night lights in bathroom and hallways.
-Install handrails and grab bars.
-Move items to make them easier to reach.
