Home Safety - Tips for a Safe Home

Home Safety

Home safety is an important consideration for those aging in place. In a given year, more seniors die from accidental injuries than those younger. Of course, falls are the largest contributor to elderly injuries than anything else, which is why we’ve devoted an entire section to fall prevention.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in a given year almost a million elderly people are treated for injuries from using products they own. According to statistics, the accidental death rate for those 65 and older is three times that of a younger person. This is why home safety is so important.
