A senior’s body becomes more fragile with age, so a fall can lead to a serious injury. Visiting Angels Atlanta East shares advice that can help seniors avoid falls and protect themselves. 

If you would like to help your loved one avoid falls at home, consider developing a fall prevention plan for your loved one. To make a plan, you can start off by taking a look around your loved one’s home. While looking around your senior loved one’s home, keep an eye out for things that can increase the chances of your loved one falling. For instance, slippery rugs can accidentally trip your loved one. Dim lighting can also make it difficult for your loved one to see and avoid obstacles. Cluttered floors can make it easier for your loved one to trip over something.
