We were on the news. Arturo Lopez, owner of TruBlue Total House Care in West Houston Texas, shared his top tips for Fall Prevention. He was interviewed on KRPC TV, alongside Lucas Farrow, a Houston Physical Therapist.
Some of his tips include:
Have handrails on both sets of the stairs and make sure they are tightly fastened
Make sure there is good lighting and with light switches at the top and bottom of stairs and on each end of a long hall
Mount grab bars near toilets and on both the inside and outside of your tub and shower.
Put night lights and light switches close to your bed.
If you or a loved one needs help identifying and preventing the potential tripping hazards in your home, TruBlue offers a Home Safety Assessment. A certified technician will review all the rooms in your home and come up with an extensive list of hazards and solutions to minimize the dangers of the home. This type of maintenance can often let people age-in-place for longer.
