Our clients receiving home care in Portland Maine know a thing or two about icy, slippery conditions. As the temperature drops here in New England the chances increase of falling from that patch of ice found on your doorstep. Seniors are at a high risk for fall related injuries and snow and ice are a big contributing factor this time of year. Rather than becoming one of the hundreds of thousands Americans over age 65 who are hospitalized due to fall related injuries every year, follow these simple steps to decrease your chances this winter.
Remember, take it slow and ask for help when you need it. It is better to be safe than sorry!
