Bathroom Safety – What’s the big deal?

What’s the BIG DEAL?

Most falls take place at night.

Most falls take place going between the bed and the bathroom.

As we age we make more frequent trips to the bathroom at night.

Many people are on medications that can contribute to unsteadiness when

getting up in the middle of the night.

Bathrooms typically have hard surfaces and sharp corners.

Falls on these unforgiving surfaces can result in severe trauma.

Most folks want to continue to live at home as long as possible.

Taking fall prevention measures increases your probabilities for doing so.

 

This is why Bathroom Safety is a BIG DEAL
