If you’re a senior living independently in Ontario and you fall, there’s a better than 50% chance that you fell in your own home – probably on the stairs. There’s nearly a 90% chance you will suffer a severe injury to the head or spine as a result of that fall.
Make sure your stairs are well lit, that you don’t accumulate clutter on any step and that loose carpet runs are tacked firmly in place. For those who feel at risk, don’t forget to wear your HipSaver Hip Protectors inside the home as well as when you go out. In addition, you may want to check out our new product website, HeadSaver Canada.
