Fall Prevention Guide

The home should be a place of comfort for aging loved ones or those with disabilities. But, without a fall prevention strategy, it could be a source of uneasiness. Balance can become a significant issue as we age, due to factors like physical weakness, medications, and cognitive or visual impairment. Help keep your loved one safe by:

Finding someone to check on them regularly
Scheduling their vision checks
Discussing medications with their physician
Checking their balance
Establishing a light exercise routine

It’s important that you take time to assess an aging loved one’s house for anything that might be a health risk. In our Fall Prevention Guide, available below, we’ll help you assess each of the main rooms of your loved one’s (or your) home, including:

  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Hallways
  • Living room
  • Stairways
  • Kitchen
  • Outdoor areas
