From slick floors to overzealous pets, our homes are filled with obstacles that can cause us to fall. The dangers of fall-related injuries are especially high for senior citizens. In fact, one-third of all people over 65 will fall this year. Seniors can stay safe by investing in personal alert systems, getting sufficient calcium and exercising regularly. It’s also important to get regular medical check-ups, which is a good time to ask your doctor if you’re getting to the point where you need a medical alert. This infographic further explores what you can do to keep yourself and your elderly loved ones safe from falls in the living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and stairways.
