Infographic: How to Avoid Slips and Falls

The American Recall Center has put together a great little infographic and blog post about how to avoid slips, trips, and falls. As they say in their post, “With a third of people age 65 and older reporting a fall each year and two-thirds of that number falling again within six months, falling poses a significant risk to seniors in their daily lives.” [Carol, add a sentence or two of personal flavor/opinion/perspective here.]

Here’s the graphic with a checklist of steps you can take to make sure you can keep taking steps. 🙂 (Click the graphic to have it pop up full size.)
