Three Ways To Prevent A Fall At Home

Statistics show that an older-aged adult ends up going to the emergency room after suffering a fall and getting injured while at home every eleven seconds. Thankfully, falls are able to be prevented simply by taking a few easy steps.

Here are three ways that you can help to prevent a fall at home:

Talk to Your Doctor

Take the time to schedule an appointment with your doctor and discuss your overall risk of falling, which is something that can be determined through an assessment. You will also want to share with your doctor any history regarding recent falls that you may have suffered.

Have Your Vision and Hearing Checked

This is something that should be done on an annual basis. When getting your vision checked, you should also have your eyeglasses upgraded if something like this is needed, especially since your eyes will help you better stay on your feet.

Talk to Family

It’s always a good idea to enlist the help of family members to help you take all of the steps you need in order to be safe and not fall in your home, especially since something like this can happen to anyone at any time.
