8 Easy Ways to Prevent Falling

8 Easy Ways to Prevent Falling

  1. Take all your prescribed medications regularly. If your medications are making you feel unwell, talk to your doctor.
  2. Get an eye exam by an eye doctor every two years.
  3. Drink water. Dehydration can lead to dizziness and falls.
  4. Keep physically active to prevent stiff joints. Consult a physiotherapist about an exercise plan. Check with your doctor before starting an exercise regime.
  5. Get enough sleep at night so you can remain alert during the day.
  6. Use night lights, especially for the path from the bedroom to the bathroom.
  7. Keep your environment clean and clutter free. Prevent falls in the bathroom by ensuring your floors are kept dry and by installing mats in the shower stall.
  8. Limit your alcohol intake and DO NOT mix alcohol with medications.
