Preventing Falls - Safety in the Home

Preventing Falls - Safety in the Home

Falls are the main reason older adults lose their independence. There are ways to prevent falls in your home by making simple changes around your home, exercising regularly, having your vision checked and having your medications reviewed by your healthcare provider. You may also benefit from having an Occupational Therapist complete a home safety assessment. Contact our office to find out more.

Home Management and Safety

Illness, injury, surgery or aging can all affect our ability to function safely and independently within our own homes. An Occupational Therapist can work with you to ensure that your home is safe and functional. After assessing the environment and the activities you do each day, they will make recommendations to reduce the risk of falls or injuries in your home, or to make it easier for you to complete everyday tasks.
