Avoiding Falls and Safety Issues 

  • Declutter as much as possible. 
  • Remove big obstacles that are hard to get around. 
  • Simplify the decorations to decrease distractions 
  • Make an easy to walk path from room to room. 
  • Carpeting is softer if someone falls and is less slippery than wood or tile floors.  
  • Avoid area rugs that aren’t attached to the floor. 
  • Put padding on sharp corners of furniture.
