Preventing a slip & fall and the resulting injuries isn’t necessarily about being more careful. People on multiple medications can be at higher risk of falling; for example anti-depressants and anti-psychotics directly affect balance. Blood pressure medications (used by 70% of people above the age of 70) can cause dizziness and often contributes to falling. Sleep medication can cause a wobbly gait.
Regular exercise can help especially those that incorporate balance drills. Reducing the number of trip hazards at home can prevent falls; area rugs can be removed and stairways and floors should be kept clear of trip and fall threats such as toys and shoes. But in addition, people should have their eyes checked once a year beyond the age of 70; take vitamin D to improve muscle strength and balance and most importantly; don’t let ego get in the way of asking a friend, family member or loved one for help.
