Fall Prevention Awareness Month

September is Fall Prevention Awareness Month! Falls are the number one cause of brain injuries and at On With Life, we are passionate about educating our community about how to prevent them. Check out the below fall prevention tips from our therapy team!

  • Use nightlights to ensure your bedroom, bathrooms and hallways are well lit
  • Clean up clutter to avoid obstacles
  • Install grab bars in bathrooms and handrails for staircases
  • Whenever possible, avoid carrying items up/down stairs
  • Remove loose rugs from around your home, or apply non-slip backing to rugs
  • Consider a raised toilet seat and shower chair for the bathroom
