As you may know, half of all slips and falls happen at home. Most happen while performing everyday activities – reaching for objects overhead, climbing on a step stool, or walking down the stairs – and if you have kids, then this list grows exponentially. In addition, it is estimated that one in three adults over the age of 65 will have a slip or fall every year and these can lead to injuries like head trauma or bone fractures.
Here is a list of some things you can consider doing in your home; things to look out for. Some minor repairs or upgrades could help minimize an injury from a slip or fall or could prevent it from happening at all.
