LIVE WITH GRACE™: Age in Place by Creating a Safer Home Environment

As we age, falls in the home can cause the loss of independent living. In fact, 1 out of 3 seniors aged 65 and older fall each year. Falls account for 25% of hospital admissions and 40% of all nursing home admissions. Nearly half of those admitted to a nursing home will never return to independent living.

Preventing Falls

Falls can be prevented. There are some simple things you can do to keep yourself from falling, such as:

  • Talk to your doctor and get a fall risk evaluation and medication and side-effect review. Take recommended actions.
  • Do physician-recommended strength and balance exercises.
  • Have your eyes checked and keep your prescription current.
  • Make your home safer by eliminating trip hazards such as area rugs, clutter, and cords.
  • Install railings on both sides of stairs when possible. Have at least one railing for any stairs in and around your home.
  • Make sure your home’s interior and exterior is uniformly well lit especially in halls, stairways, and entries.
  • Store items at waist level that you use often to avoid stooping and step stools.

Make Your Bathroom a Safe Space

Bathrooms are the #1 place for accidents in your home. For people aged 65 and older, up to 80% of falls in the home occur in the bathroom! 66% of all bathroom injuries occur while in the tub or shower. Let HomePride help you preserve your independence by designing a safer bath space with:
