Every year 1 in 3 adults over 65 fall in their home. Two thirds of those who fall will fall again within 6 months. Falls at home are the leading cause of trauma deaths and they are also the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma for seniors.
40% of fall victims never return to their homes.. Some causes of in home falls are just part of the aging process. Failing eye sight, loss of physical ability and effects of medications are out of our control. However a good many falls from environmental hazards can be prevented.
For an extensive list of fall prevention tips go to the Colorado University Extension website: www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/consumer/10242.html
New Philly Plumbing can help you make your home or the home of your loved one safer by installing a comfort height toilet, grab bars and a walk-in shower in place of the bathtub. Moving the laundry from the basement to the main floor eliminates the need to lug laundry up & down steps and a stackable washer & dryer can be installed in a relatively small space. We gladly give free quotes and offer all our senior customers material & fixture discounts. For more information or to schedule an estimate call Mary at 330.343.4211.
