Falls account for MORE THAN HALF of all the injuries in the home and half of these will result in hospitalization. This checklist will help you inspect your home for hazards that could lead to a fall.
As you go through the checklist you will receive tips on making your home safer. At the end of the checklist, you will also get a summary of your home safety recommendations.
You have now completed the Home Safety Checklist!
