Preventing Falls at Home

The Bad News:
Falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations for Canadian seniors - including 95% of all hip fractures. And 1/3 of these seniors are admitted to a Long Term Care (LTC) Facility after one of these falls - and these
numbers are on the rise. 
*PHAC, Full Report here.

The Good News:

Most falls are completely preventable!

Taking steps to be proactive about making a safe environment can make a BIG difference. Even simple modifications like having a few grab bars installed can prevent hospitalizations and early LTC admissions.

We recommend targeting your bathroom & any steps/entryways first.

“I felt thoroughly comfortable having the BuildAble team guide my bathroom renovation. They went far beyond what another company would do in order to give us a beautiful and safe bathroom. They showed a personal interest. They were always happy… we could hear them singing as they worked! It was a pleasure to have them working here.”​
