This brings back memories of my role as a caregiver for my 91-year-old mother. Keeping her safe from falls was one of our major concerns, especially when she thought she didn’t need any help walking. My mother loved her toilet grab bar and hand rails though. She even showed them off to me one day.
Falls can happen to anyone but are more common as we grow older. Fall accidents can lead to fatal injuries, which impact a senior’s independence and quality of life. Loved ones also suffer the anguish - brought on by an accident - that perhaps, could have been prevented.
