How do I prepare my home for avoiding injury after returning home?

Updated: 03/20/2014

Before you return home, make sure it is safe and hazard-free. Ask friends or family to help you rearrange rooms as needed and check to make sure you have a handrail installed along one side of any staircases. Avoid uneven or wet floors that might cause you to slip. Make getting up out of your chair easier by adding pillows and keep items you use often within easy reach.
