I live alone and am worried about falling. What can I do to prevent a fall?

Falls can be a leading cause of injury and disability, especially in people over 65, but taking a few simple steps can help you prevent them.  First, review all of your medications with your primary care physician.  The most common cause of falls is due to adverse symptoms when combining medications.  In your home, remove area rugs, keep rooms uncluttered so you have unobstructed pathways and make sure you don’t have cords stretched across the floors.  Place night lights in your bedroom, bathroom, and hallways.  And keep an eye on your pets.  They can get tangled in your feet and cause you to trip.
