Safe Steps:
Falls Prevention Program

Home Safety - Safe Steps: Falls Prevention Program For an older adult, a fall can be a life-changing event leading to less mobility, independence and even death. In fact, every year an average of nearly 5,000 Americans age 65 and older die from a fall-related injury at home. In response to these statistics, the Home Safety Council has developed the national Safe Steps program designed to educate older adults and their family members on how to reduce their risk of falling dangers.

The Safe Steps curriculum, which was distributed free of charge to 5,000 older adult activity centers nationwide, includes an instructional video, educational wall poster, and activities that can help track medications, exercise and assess overall home safety.

The national program promotes preventative low cost solutions and simple behavioral changes to enhance personal safety and independence. Use these resources to help older loved ones learn about physical activity, medication tracking and home modifications that will help them stay safe in their homes:
