Fall Prevention

Preventing falls in your home. we offer a variety of home safety equipment to help prevent falls in the home. From shower bars to walkers, we have the equipment to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Below are some tips for creating a safe household.

  • Flooring - should be dry and non-slip. Remove or stick down rugs and loose carpet
  • Lighting - ensure adequate lighting, and reduce sun-glare by using a curtain or blinds. Use a light if getting up at night. The average person's balance is reduced in the dark.
  • Stairs - need to be well maintained and lit, preferably with light switches at the top and bottom.
  • Marking the edge of steps with a contrasting colored strip increases safety.
  • Chairs - avoid chairs with wheels. Feet should reach the floor when sitting.
  • Bathroom - dry the floor and use rubber mats in shower/ bath. If standing is difficult, see an occupational therapist for advice on installation of rails and bathroom seating.
  • Bedroom - make sure you can get on and off your bed easily. Arrange shelves and wardrobes so you don't have to lean or reach too far for frequently used items (including spectacles, walking aids). Remove clutter, clothes from the floor and electrical cords to reduce tripping hazards.
  • Kitchen- frequently used objects should be easily reached.

We offer 24-hour on-call services for all patients. If you'd like more information on our home medical products and supplies, please call (319) 369-8686 or visit our showroom.
