Reduce Your Risk Of Falling At Home

Reduce Your Risk Of Falling At Home. While one in three people over the age of 65 falls, often resulting in life-changing injuries, falls can happen to anyone.

In this blogpost “Reduce Your Risk Of Falling At Home” we will give you a fall prevention checklist – room by room:


  • First of all, keep a light, a lamp, light switch or night light near to your bed

Stairs and hallways

  • Firstly add handrails on both sides of the stairs
  • Secondly, install anti-slip strips on each stair
  • In addition, install night lights along the route from the bedroom to the bathroom

  • Use dining chairs that have armrests and no wheels

Living room
