Each year, thousands of older Americans fall at home. Many of them are seriously injured and some are disabled. Falls are often due to hazards that are easy to overlook but many times, easy to fix. Interim HealthCare has developed a checklist that can be used to help you find and fix hazards in your home.
This list identifies most of the common hazards that could cause falls that may result in serious injuries, particularly among the elderly. Homes come in all manner of shapes and sizes. If something does not apply to your home, move on to the next question. For example, if you live in a one story house, questions relating to stairs may not apply to you. We suggest you print the home safety checklist and fill it in as you look around your home by entering a check mark against each item.
