After the age of 65 the “F” word changes. Falls! A small trip on a rug or even a pet can lead to a serious and devastating fall. A statistic cites, that a person approaching 80 years of age breaks a hip, they have a one in four chance of not surviving. Top three fall risks include ( Risks For Seniors) :
- Slipping in the tub.
- Tripping over clutter.
It is vital in a Senior’s home, that it can be somewhat “fall” proof. At PSFS, we recommend finding a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) that provides recommendations as to where to put grab bars, cite fall risks and increase overall safety.
