ore than half of all injury-
related deaths and 75 per-
cent of disabling injuries
occur in and around the home, reports
the National Safety Council.
Falls are the leading cause of injury-
related deaths among seniors 65 and
older. To help seniors create safer envi-
ronments that allow them to remain
living in their homes for as long as
possible, the Area Agency on Aging 1-
B offers the following tips:
• Many seniors slip on throw rugs,
so be sure to use rugs that have a non-
skid backing or use double-sided tape.
• Place reflective non-skid tape on
stairs, which will help an older adult to
see the steps more clearly.
• Install grab bars in showers,
around tubs or near the toilet.
•A personal emergency response
system (PERS) is an electronic device
used to summon help in an emergency
such as a fall.
• Regular exercise maintains balance
and builds strength and flexibility. Join
a fitness class or water class or start a
walking program. Exercising in water
is gentle on joints.
• Installing lever handles on doors
makes them easier to open, especially
for seniors with arthritis.
• Place a chair near the main door to
provide a place to rest after shopping
and put packages.
• Install special hinges that allow a
door to open wider to accommodate
walkers and wheelchairs.
Those who would like more infor-
mation on having grab bars installed
in showers or other home based ser-
vices to help an senior remain living
at home can call the Area Agency on
Aging 1-B at (800) 852-7795.
