SENIORS AND SAFETY

When you’re getting on in years, you need to take special precautions and be watchful of activities that you partake in.  When performing even everyday activities, you should be mindful of what could happen.  Seniors and veterans are more at risk for falling on stairs than younger adults, and more likely to suffer severe injuries.  In fact, seniors 65+ account for 70% of the deaths resulting from stair accidents.

Always consult your doctor before taking any medication, no matter how insignificant it may seem.  It may conflict with other medication that you currently have, and cause you to have health problems.

Be mindful of potentially dangerous situations and drug combinations.

It will make your senior years more enjoyable.
