Falling Prevention Tips

Sure, people laugh at the ‘help me, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up’ commercial.

Falling is no joke.

I dislocated my hip. I couldn’t get up. I’d fallen and had been home alone for one and a half hours splayed across the coffee table, candles at the other end still burning. The persistent physical pain and emotional trauma from dislocating my left hip replacement left me drained and near shock. I’d no sooner scooted a couch cushion under my chest creating a bridge keeping my head secure during my impending unconsciousness.

Divine intervention sent my Earth Angel and friend to my home. She had planned a quick stop at my house with a Happy Thanksgiving offering of Kuan Yin tea. The Universe has a sense of humor, mysterious and warped at times but a definite comedic flair.

This article addresses falling and provides tips on why falling incidents appear on the rise.

Knowledge is power, sharing is powerful.

Enjoy~
