Christmas Wellness and Essential Insights on Fall Prevention

In the midst of the holiday season’s joy and festivities, it’s crucial to consider the importance of both Christmas wellness and fall prevention. It can be easy to overlook potential hazards, especially during wintry weather. By prioritising Christmas wellness and essential insights on fall prevention, it can create a safer holiday season. From decorating safely to considering fall alarms and preventative measures, families can make the most of the season while safeguarding health and happiness.

Winter Care Tip

Prevent the flu and protect lungs from cold air by layering up. Wearing 2 or 3 thinner layers of loose-fitting clothing is warmer than a single layer of thick clothing.

Navigating Winter Hazards

By preventing falls through various methods and navigating winter hazards, a safer environment can be created.

  • Appropriate footwear with good traction is best for icy and slippery surfaces. Opt for winter boots with non-slip soles that provide stability and keep feet warm and dry.
  • Keep outdoor pathways and driveways clear of snow and ice. Regularly shovel snow and apply ice melt or sand to reduce slippery surfaces. Pay special attention to steps and ramps.
  • If there are outdoor steps or stairs, make sure handrails are secure and use them for support when navigating slippery surfaces. Installing additional handrails or grab bars at home can also provide stability.
  • For elderly individuals or those with mobility challenges, consider using walking aids like canes or walkers. These devices provide added stability and support when navigating icy terrain.
