COMMON CAUSES OF FALLS
torn carpets, mats or polished, slippery floors are not ideal.
overgrown plants, pot plants or damaged walkways are very dangerous. Make sure the areas are well lit and use hand rails where needed.
check steps and ladders are not too high, narrow or uneven whether it is in the shower, bath or outdoors.
