Name: Fall Prevention​​ Plan​​ 

SKU: FPRGOTPT

Solution Plan:  ​​​​ 

Keep moving​​ 

Physical activity can go a long way toward fall prevention. With your doctor's OK, consider activities such as walking, water workouts or tai chi.​​ Such activities​​ may​​ reduce the risk of falls by improving strength, balance, coordination and flexibility.​​ (Always check with your doctor first)​​ 

If you avoid physical activity because you're afraid it will make a fall more likely, tell your doctor. He or she may recommend carefully monitored exercise programs or refer you to a physical therapist. The physical therapist can create a custom exercise program aimed at improving your balance, flexibility, muscle strength and gait.

Wear sensible shoes

  • Consider changing your footwear as part of your fall-prevention plan. High heels, floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can make an individual slip, stumble and fall. ​​ Instead, wear properly fitting, sturdy shoes with nonskid soles. Sensible shoes may also reduce joint pain.

Remove home hazards

  • Look around the home as the living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, hallways and stairways may be filled with hazards.​​ 

  • Remove boxes, newspapers, electrical cords and phone cords from walkways.

  • Move coffee tables, magazine racks and plant stand from high-traffic areas.

  • Secure loose rugs with double-faced tape, tacks or a slip-resistant backing — or remove loose rugs from your home.

  • Repair loose, wooden floorboards and carpeting right away.

  • Store clothing, dishes, food and other necessities within easy reach.

  • Immediately clean spilled liquids, grease or food.

  • Use nonslip mats in your bathtub or shower. Use a bath seat, which allows you to sit while showering.

Light up your living space

  • Keep​​ the​​ home brightly lit to avoid tripping on objects that are hard to see.​​ 

  • Place night lights in the bedroom, bathroom and hallways.

  • Place a lamp within reach the bed for middle-of-the-night needs.

  • Make clear paths to light switches that aren't near​​ a​​ room entrance​​ for glow-in-the-dark or illuminated switches.

  • Turn on the lights before going up or down stairs.

  • Store flashlights in easy-to-find places in case of power outages.

.​​ Use assistive devices

  • Handrails for both sides of stairways

  • Nonslip treads for bare-wood steps

  • A raised toilet seat or one with armrests

  • Grab bars for the shower​​ 

  • A sturdy plastic seat for the shower or tub — plus a hand-held shower nozzle for bathing while sitting down.
