Four Ways To Prevent Falls

  • Manage your medications.  Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review your medicines to see if any medications might make you dizzy or sleepy. Also, talk with your doctor about falls and how to prevent them.
  •  Do strength and balance exercises to make your legs stronger and improve your balance. 
  • Have your vision checked at least once a year.  Update your eyeglasses when your vision changes.
  • Make your home safer.  Install grab bars inside the bathtub and next to the toilet, install handrails on all stairways, add more lighting inside and outside of your home, and declutter your home to prevent trip hazards.

Call us today for help.
