Have you recently checked your home for safety? Having a fresh set of eyes on your home can help you identify hazards that may contribute to falls. Try using our checklist with a friend or family member to see what you can spot, or contact your local community LHIN for a professional assessment.

  • If you are 50+ with a risk of falling, you may qualify for home safety assessment and grab bar installations in your home. Please contact the North Lambton Community Health Centre at (519) 786-4545 extension 265 for details

Keep Active! The #1 way for a senior to prevent falls is to stay fit and be active every day. A good way to start is by using our exercise sheet (Click here to open)  and practicing these movements! Try it with a chair as you watch TV, while you stand and cook at the countertop, or while brushing your teeth by the sink.
