Falls Can Be Prevented

Falls Can Be Prevented

September 10, 2018

September is officially Fall Prevention month – not the season but the tipsy toppling we over 60 have a tendency to do with increasing regularity.  As you can see from the proclamation from Governor Inslee, falling has some pretty significant implications for life expectancy and quality of life after 65.

As the proclamation says, there are a number of ways to prevent falls:

  1. Exercise (Come check out the new exercise room here at Stillwaters when it opens in the next couple of weeks),
  2. Regularly review medications with doctor,
  3. Having your eyes checked regularly, and
  4. Making your home safer (search for and clear away tripping hazards, improve lighting in your home, and use night lights throughout your house).

Take steps to prevent a fall because you don’t want to become a statistic in the “Fall Prevention” proclamations of the future.

I am taking a couple weeks to travel on the east coast.  Mr. Blogger and I will soak up the scenery of New York, Massachusetts, Main, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the gulf of Saint Lawrence and then Quebec.  We will remember to take a few photos and share on our return.  Take care and “see” you in a couple weeks.  – Cindy
