Guard Your Ground: 78% of Falls Happen In or Around Your Home

The Startling Reality of Falls

Have you ever glanced at a statistic and felt a sudden sense of urgency? That’s the feeling many of us get when we learn that a staggering 78% of falls occur in or around one’s home. The place that should be your sanctuary, your retreat, and your comfort zone, can unfortunately also be a setting for one of the most common risks to senior health.

Why Focus on Home-Based Falls?

The home is where we spend a significant amount of our time, particularly for seniors who may be retired or less mobile. Yet, many of us overlook simple measures that could make our homes much safer. This September, our campaign aims to shed light on this critical issue and provide actionable solutions.

TruBlue's Commitment to Fall Prevention

At TruBlue, we're not just about maintaining homes, we're about enhancing lives. We take a proactive approach to fall prevention by offering home assessments to identify potential hazards like uneven flooring, clutter, and poor lighting. Our trained TruPro Home Technicians can install safety features such as grab bars, ramps, and non-slip flooring, reducing the risks where they are most likely to happen.

What Can You Do?

1. Educate Yourself and Others: Knowledge is power. Knowing the risk factors and preventive measures can go a long way in reducing the incidence of falls.

2. Opt for a Home Safety Assessment: An assessment by professionals can pinpoint the exact modifications your home may need.

3. Take Advantage of Our Special Offer: In collaboration with Close The Gap we're offering 100 FREE grab bars to those who need them. It's our way of saying we care, and it's a tangible step towards reducing those fall statistics.

Don't let another moment pass in a home that could be safer. Take the initiative to protect yourself and your loved ones from the unnecessary risks that come with potential falls. Visit Close The Gap to learn more about our Fall Prevention campaign and discover how you can 'Grab the Bars' to ensure a safer, more secure environment at home.

Take action now. The best defense is a strong offense, and your first offensive move starts with making your home a safer place.


This September, let's lower that 78% statistic together. We owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to make our homes as safe as they can possibly be.
