Falls Prevention By Managing And Modifying The Environment

It is best to conduct a walkthrough of your home and its surrounding environment to identify the possible and potential problem areas, to prevent falls. A home visit by an occupational therapist or physiotherapist will also be useful as they are trained to identify risk factors and recommend the appropriate steps to take to make your home more safe and accessible.

Some common solutions:

  1. Install contrasting handrails on stairs and steps.
  2. Decrease clutter on floor.
  3. Ensure there is adequate lighting by doorways and along walkways leading to doors.
  4. Use contrasting tape to indicate change in heights.
  5. If necessary, place non-skid tape under mats.
  6. Avoid using loose rugs.
  7. Ensure at least a phone in each level (2 better) with emergency numbers at each phones.
  8. Add electrical outlets, so you need not have excessive wiring running around the house.
  9. Use nightlights for mobility at night/evenings.
  10. Setup an electronic emergency response system.
  11. Install hand rails and grab bars on walls, especially inside bathrooms and toilets.
  12. Ensure there is a 'catcher' to liquid soap dispensers.
  13. Install portable shower heads
  14. Get a shower seat that is stable and secure.
  15. Keep common items within reach.
  16. Don't use floor polish, and don't walk on the newly
  17. mopped floor. Wait till the floor is dry.
  18. Keep cords out of the walking ways.
