Here are a few fall safety tips that you can use to get started making sure you and your loved ones are prepared for the changing seasons:
Drive safely: This includes both vehicle maintenance as well as following the rules of the road. Have fluids checked, tired rotated and filled if necessary, and that your headlights and taillights are in good condition. Exercise caution if there are leaves or snow on the roads.
Get plenty of sleep: Ensuring that you get enough sleep can help you avoid becoming ill and helps with alertness while driving in dangerous conditions.
Test and replace alarm batteries: This is more than just a senior care safety tip, as everyone, young or old, should test and replace smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries every 6 months. Many people use Daylight Savings Time as a reminder.
Be aware of your back: Ensuring that you and your loved ones are protecting their back is a highly important part or fall safety. When raking leaves or shoveling snow, be sure not to overdo it! Stretch before you begin working and take breaks to avoid getting overtired.
