According to the CDC, every second of every day an older adult falls.

1 in 4 people report falling

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among older adults.

According to the CDC, one out of five falls cause a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury.

1 out of 5 falls results in serious injuries such as head injuries or broken bones.

Each year, 3 million older people are treated at the emergency room for fall related injuries.

According to the CDC, falling once doubles your change of falling again.

Once you experience a fall, you are two times more likely to fall again.

The fear of additional falls often results in avoidance behavior, leading to decreased activity among our loved ones.

We can help.

Home Modifications are the installation of safety items such as grab bars, wheelchair ramps, and vertical platform lifts.

These devices allow our loved ones to live independently, while staying safe at home.
