National Safety Month is a time to reflect on safety, and ways to prevent injury. Many times, we think of safety concerns being present when we are away from home, be it from crime, car accidents, workplace hazards or any other number of daily risks we all face. But more of those risks are at home than we might think. According to A Secure Life, data updated in 2014 reflected more than 21 million medical visits each year as a result of an unintentional injury at home. For the elderly, falls at home are a huge risk. One in every three Americans 65-years and older suffers a fall per year.
Both A Secure Life and The National Safety Council list tips useful for fall-proofing yours or your loved ones’ homes. In addition, Assisting Hands Home Care offers fall risk assessments and individualized fall prevention plans to help seniors stay safe.
