Room by Room Guide to Preventing Senior Falls

Room by Room Guide to Preventing Senior Falls
Philips, 10/3/2015

As seniors get older, the risk and the repercussions of falls grows. Simple clutter can become a serious health hazard. Poorly designed layouts can confine seniors so they feel uneasy in their own home. Fortunately, there are simple ways to make a home safer for your loved one. From strategically placed grab bars, to removing small rugs, Philips Senior Lifeline has prepared a room-by-room guide that will prevent senior falls. 

Here is a snippet from the introduction of the guide: 

“While nobody can completely fall-proof their home,
we hope that this booklet will provide you comfort knowing you’ve taken steps to reduce many of the
risks of falling. Throughout this guide, you’ll see a set
of pictures of typical household rooms. The first picture depicts some common conditions that lead to falls. The second picture illustrates how these conditions can be improved to minimize the fall risk.“
