Prevention is Key
Falls do not just happen – they are caused by a variety of risk factors that can typically be prevented if you are prepared. Typically, these factors are linked to a physical condition, medical problem or the home environment. Furthermore, factors like taking multiple medications, limited mobility, poor eyesight, arthritis, dehydration, and the lack of grab bars in the bath tub are a few examples of common risk factors. Preventing falls starts with identifying and addressing risk factors such as these promptly.
