As the body ages it can take more and more time to heal from an injury. Thus, it is important for seniors to take care of their bodies as they age. Even a simple fall can do a lot of damage. Speaking of falls, Visiting Angels Sarasota breaks down how seniors can prevent falls at home. 

The following is a summary of Visiting Angels Sarasota’s 4 tips. 

  1. Place any pets in a kennel while the senior is busy. When a pet is out and about, a senior can trip over their pet, but temporary placing their pet in a kennel can prevent some falls. 
  2. Non slip shoes can help seniors when it comes to sleek or slippery floors. 
  3. A tidy home can prevent seniors from accidently tripping over some things on the floor. 
  4. Sufficient lighting can help seniors avoid some obstacles before tripping over them.
