Fall Facts: Tips to Prevent Falls in your Home

Fall Facts: Tips to Prevent Falls in Your Home

Falls are considered the number one cause of injury for seniors. After falling once, it doubles a person’s chance of falling again and often leads to Post Fall Anxiety Syndrome. Learn how a few simple modifications can help mitigate fall risks in the home and provide peace of mind for you or a loved one.

 

Bathroom: Did you know people over 85 suffer more than half their injuries near the toilet? For those who struggle to get up from the seated position or need extra stability in the bathroom, the TILT® Toilet Incline Lift may be a perfect aid to prevent injuries and falls in the bathroom.

 

Bonus Tip: Add non-slip mats to the shower and bathtub to prevent any slips and falls while bathing. If accessing a shower or tub is too difficult for you or your loved one, consider using our EZ-Shower Bedside Shower or EZ-BATHE® Body Washing Basin for an in-bed bathing experience.

 

Entryways and Raised Landings: Does your home have a tricky entryway or a step down into another room? These can be problematic for those who experience difficulty moving safely throughout their home. Adding a TRANSITIONS® threshold ramp, mat, or plate in those areas can dramatically reduce the number of tripping incidents and create a smooth path for wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, etc.

 

Porches and Stairs: Don’t risk falling or tripping down porch or entryway stairs, especially when it’s rainy or icy. Adding a ramp and/or platform to your home can help eliminate environmental hazards, which is the majority reason people fall. The PATHWAY® 3G Modular Access System could be the perfect solution when it comes to creating a cleared walkway with safe handrails to guide individuals to and from home access points.

 

While not every fall leads to injury, there can still be health risks that are present such as the inability to get up or the anxiety of falling again. Since one-third of those who are over 65 will fall each year, it’s important to take the right precautions to help eliminate the potential causes of injury.

Portable Ramps and Threshold Ramps for Thanksgiving

A portable ramp will make it easier for guests to get in your house.

 

So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your place, huh? Sitting down and sharing a seemingly endless meal of good food and great company with your family will undoubtedly be a fun time. However, it also means there’s going to be a lot of stuff on your plate, literally and figuratively, as you plan to accommodate extra people in your home.

EZ-ACCESS hopes to take some of the stress out of hosting Thanksgiving at your home. If you’re cooking, cleaning and setting the table, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether everyone can make it through the front door. Let us take care of that with one of our residential ramp that will make it easier for a family member with limited mobility to make it into your home.

Portable Ramps for Thanksgiving

One of those portable ramps that can help add access to your home is our SUITCASE® Singlefold Ramp. The best thing about this portable ramp is its portability, which allows the ramp to be easily folded up so it can be carried to your destination. When you need to use it, simply unfold it and securely place it. The portable ramp will do the rest.

Threshold Ramps for Thanksgiving

Maybe you don’t need a portable ramp, but it can still be a little tough to get someone with a mobility scooter or wheelchair over the threshold and through the front door. If that’s the case, you may want to consider our TRANSITIONS® Angled Entry Mat or the TRANSITIONS® Modular Entry Mat. Both of these threshold ramps are easy to transport and place to provide a smooth transition over your thresholds so members of your family can easily get in and out of your home on Thanksgiving.

If you’re not sure which of our portable ramp or mat systems is the best fit for your home, use the EZ-ACCESS ramp selector tool, which can help you  find out which of our products will work best to suit your needs. We hope we can help take out some of the stress from your hosting duties, that way you can focus on enjoying the time with your family.
