getting older. Up to half of home accidents could be prevented by making some
very simple changes. Here are a few suggestions:
TMark trouble spots with bright tapes. The first and last steps on stairs are
usually high-risk accident areas. Applying bright tapes and using bright light in
these areas would make these spots easier to see

bathroom. This is unfortunate (不幸的) because it’s easy to make the area safe
form accidents. Putting grab bars in the bathroom gives people something to hang

otherwise gets in trouble. With the push of a button, the alarm automatically sends a
signal, which gets someone to call and see if the person needs help
