According to www.cdc.gov, each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury. Fall accidents are one of the serious problems that most of our senior loved ones struggle with. And sadly, most accidents happen at home. All of our senior parents dream of aging at home but how can we help fulfill their dream if our house is not safe for them. To protect your senior loved ones from fall accidents at home, here are some ways that you can resort to:
- Install grab bars and handrails
- Repair or remove tripping hazards
- Make all the floors in your house non-slip
- Clean up clutter and install proper lightning
- Let them wear shoes and avoid them from wearing loose clothing
