As our parents and loved ones age, they often experience health and mobility changes that make them more prone to accidents, especially falls. In fact, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four people over the age of 65 fall every year, and over half of those incidents occur in their own homes.
We created this brief guide to help make a home safe for loved ones as they age. This guide will help you:
- Learn which areas of a home present the most risk for falls
- Consider changes that could make a room safer
