Designing a Fall-Proof Home for Aging-in-Place

Falls rank among the top worries that older adults face in daily life, and not without reason. Falls are a leading cause of injury and death among older adults, and adults who are injured in a fall may never regain the level of functioning they had before falling.

The best response to a fear of falling isn’t avoiding activities that pose a risk, however. Rather than limiting themselves, seniors should design home plans that minimize fall risk so they can enjoy maximum independence as they age.
