As I visit with older adults daily, there are five top achievable fall preventers that always come up.
Engaging in regular exercise, including strength training, balance exercises, and flexibility routines, helps improve muscle strength, coordination, and balance, reducing the risk of falls. Trying to follow this one a little more closely myself.
Making necessary modifications to the home environment, such as installing grab bars, handrails, stairlifts, non-slip flooring, and adequate lighting, can significantly reduce fall hazards.
Ensuring that medications are managed properly, with regular reviews by healthcare professionals, can help minimize side effects that might contribute to falls.
Regular eye and hearing examinations are essential for detecting any issues that might affect balance, mobility, and overall safety.
Wearing well-fitted, non-slip footwear and comfortable clothing that doesn’t impede movement can help prevent slips and trips.
