How to Prevent Falls in Older Adults in 2024

Senior Health and Wellbeing  |  November 29, 2023

Prevent falls and maintain your independence! Falls are the primary cause of injuries and hospitalizations among seniors in Canada. They can lead to pain, loss of independence, and a move to a care facility. However, most falls can be prevented.

Living safely at home requires adapting your environment, behaviour, and lifestyle to the changes that come with age. Ensure your home is safe by installing brighter lighting, decluttering your floors, rearranging furniture, and using assistive devices. Stay healthy and active by eating well and consulting with a health professional about exercise programs. This will help you maintain balance and strength to prevent falls and serious injury.

By making changes to your home and lifestyle, you can prevent falls and maintain your independence.

Did you know that most indoor falls happen in the bedroom and bathroom? To prevent falls and stay safe, consider following these home safety tips.

  • Make sure there is enough lighting in every room, especially in the bedroom and bathroom.
  • Secure any loose carpets, cords, or clutter that could cause you to trip and fall.
  • Take your time when going up and down stairs, and always hold onto the handrail for support.
  • Install grab bars in the bathroom to help prevent falls, and use a non-slip bath mat in the tub or shower.
  • If you have been instructed to use assistive devices like a cane or walker, make sure to use them properly.
  • Be mindful of any pets that may be underfoot and could potentially cause you to lose your balance.
  • Keep a phone within reach in case of emergencies or if you need to call for help.
  • Be cautious of wearing long robes, trousers, or nightgowns that could get caught on something and cause you to trip.
  • Wear appropriate and safe footwear both indoors and outdoors to provide stability and prevent slips.
  • Consider using a personal alarm or implementing a “buddy system” where someone is aware of your movements and can assist you if needed.
