Fall Prevention

Need affordable bath accessibility products to help to prevent falls? Fall prevention is a growing area of concern and attention due to the startling impact falls have on the lives of seniors. Falls are the leading cause of injury death and are a significant threat to seniors’ safety and independence. A few quick facts on the importance of fall prevention… One-third of Americans aged 65+ falls each year. Every 15 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 29 minutes, an older adult dies following a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

While fall statistics may seem grim, the risks of falls, particularly in the bathroom, are able to be minimized with Safeway Safety Step’s line of affordable bathtub safety modification products. Fall prevention begins with removing the barriers or impediments seniors or individuals with mobility issues face when trying to access the bathtub. By modifying your existing bathtub with the Safeway Step, the risk of falls is reduced because a section of the existing bathtub is cut away and removed and the resulting opening is fit with a Safeway Step.
