Accidents in the home are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States.  With planning and some easy-to-implement adaptations, you can reduce the risk of injuries that result in trips to the doctor and stays at the hospital.

You’ll also discover how these strategies help you feel safer, reduce frustration and make it easier to navigate around your home.
