6. Hold On
Get a grip! Hold on to sturdy furniture or handrails if you are unsteady on your feet.

7. Pay Attention
Pay close attention to fall trouble spots. Be aware that 45% of all household injuries take place in the bathroom and 20% take place in the kitchen. Install safety bars if you need them – or know where you have handholds in case you trip or fall. Wear safe footwear. Make sure that the soles of your shoes provide good traction; those comfortable old shoes may feel great on your feet, but they can be a hazard. If you wear slippers around the house, make sure they have rubber soles.

8. Exercise
Move it or lose it! Ask your primary care physician to prescribe an appropriate exercise plan for you to help improve balance, and muscle tone. Regular exercise improves all areas of your life so enjoy it.

9. Lights On for Safety
Keep your home well lit. A dark home is a dangerous home. Make sure that all of the areas you walk in are illuminated at all times of the day and, especially the evening. Pay extra attention to areas where you frequently walk, like pathways to and from the bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. Keep a flashlight handy at all times in case of power failures.

10. Medication
Follow the directions! Take medications as directed, on time, and only the dosage prescribed. Do not skip medications. Report any side effects or negative reactions you experience to your primary care physician. Remember, failure to properly take medication is a major cause of falls and fall related injuries.

11. Make sure a reputable medical alarm system is in place.

By taking a few moments to follow some simple, common sense steps to improve the safety of your home, you can avoid potentially serious or even life-threatening injuries while maintaining your independent lifestyle. For more helpful safety tips, or information about Alert1 personal
