Install a nightlight
Although not something most able-bodied, younger adults worry about, falling is a grim reality for many people. (In the U.S., one out of three adults age 65 and older falls each year, and falling is the leading cause of injury death among seniors.) Thankfully, there’s a simple solution for nighttime spills: better lighting. Installing modest, low-energy nightlights in your home is an easy, affordable way to prevent injuries. Plus, guests, seniors, and visitors with children will appreciate the security of well-lit hallways, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Today, challenge yourself to finish this simple task.
