Home & Neighborhood Safety

Home Safety

Over half of falls happen at home, making simple changes around your home can decrease your risk of falling. 

  • Remove tripping hazards such as papers, books, clothes, and shoes.
  • Tape or tack down or remove rugs.
  • Replace dim or non-functioning light bulbs.
  • Put handrails on all stairs and steps.
  • Install grab bars next to your toilet and in the tub and shower.

Neighborhood Safety

Walking about outside can present challenges. Surfaces may be uneven, variations in sunlight and shade can make it difficult to see clearly and slippery surfaces during winter pose a significant fall risk.
