Home Modifications Module 1:
Quick Fixes for a Safer Home and Fall Prevention
About The Webinar
Do you worry about you or a family member having a fall in their home?
Anyone can be injured from falling in their home. But, as we age we are at higher risk of falls and may sustain a more severe injury as a result. In this module, you will learn some quick fixes that may increase safety and make navigation of everyday tasks easier in the home.
- Review resources to initially assess the home’s safety on your own
- Learn about different types of equipment that you or someone handy can install relatively inexpensively to decrease the risks of a fall in the home and increase safe participation in daily activities, such as bathing or getting out of bed
- Understand the role and benefits of having an occupational therapist assess the home and the people living in the home
