Help protect yourself against broken bones that can lead to other health complications and death in older adults. Keep your stairways and living areas well lighted. Clear away clutter and repair any loose floorboards or carpeting. Tack or tape down throw rugs. Install grab bars in showers, bathtubs and beside the toilet. And, don't stand on stools or chairs to get those out-of-reach items - keep things you use regularly where you can get to them easily and safely.
