2. Equip yourÂ bathrooms, bathtubs and shower stalls with grab bars that are securely attached.
3. All rugs must be secured withÂ non-slip backing pads.
4. Maintain an active lifestyle.Â Being physically activity and stretching exercises keeps muscles strong.
5. Engage in as many activities that are healthy and fun.
