Dementia - keeping safe in the home

Aged nervous tissue

Aged nervous tissue is less able to rapidly communicate with other neural tissues.

Preventing falls

The risk of tripping and falling is greater in people age 65 or older, people with arthritis or neurologic disease, and those with dementia. This can result in broken bones or more serious injuries. Make changes in your and your loved one's home to lower the risk of falling.
