Accidents can happen anywhere you are. Whether you are outside or inside the comfort of your home it is bound to happen. The World Health Organization (WHO) latest report indicated fall as one of the most dangerous accidents that can happen to a person. It is also one of the leading causes of unintentional injuries ranging from minor fractures, broken bones and head trauma. On the other hand, fatal fall can lead to death wherein based on the report, there are approximately 646,000 of individuals who die from such accident.

Who are prone to fall?

Anyone can slip due to a wet bathroom floor and fall. Some individuals fall from stairs or at an elevated place because they are forcing themselves to reach a particular object or finish a household chore. However, the injury caused by this accident has a different consequence to every person. One of the greatest factors which put a person at risk in fall is age. Elders are highly at risk to fall. As a person grows old, his or her nutrition source becomes limited. A senior's body could not produce right levels of essential compounds which the body requires to function. This condition is a normal consequence of the aging process. For this reason, as your age increases your skin becomes dull, your eyesight is blurry and your bones are getting weaker and brittle. Having this physical condition makes it hard to maneuver yourself around the house especially on slippery floors or dimly lighted areas in your home. Thus, a weak physicality along with underlying medical condition is what makes elders prone to fall.

How to prevent the dangerous consequences of fall

Minor injuries are curable by applying first aid remedies such as a tourniquet. However, fatal injuries are difficult to treat and it might cause a lifetime effect on your stature. Therefore, as early as now, you have to learn how to prevent yourself from fall including your family members. Here are the top fall prevention tips that you should implement in your home to keep harm at bay.

1. Remove clutters such small objects on the stairs and hallways of your home.

2. Keep your home lighted especially in accident-prone areas like the stairs and bathroom.

3. Make sure that your bathroom floor is free from soap cake or suds.

4. Know how to deliver first aid to avoid further injuries.

5. Install a medical alert system in your home for immediate emergency response in case of fatal accidents.

Nowadays, medical alert systems are the leading health tool for elders. These alert tools vary from in-home installed devices to mobile. This device works by pushing the emergency button which directly sends alert signals to service providers and immediately contacts the wearer of the device. If the person wearing a medical alert device is unresponsive, the service provider will contact the nearest hospital for an emergency response action. What elders need are around-the-clock emergency notifications which you can only get it by using Life Alert. The Life Alert is one of the leading medical tools which thrive in helping elders in emergency situations. You can learn more about this device through Bay Alarm Medical.

Sincerely,
