National Safety Month Tips

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Every June the National Safety Council celebrates Safety Month.

During the month, families are encouraged to keep their homes safe from accidents and injury. It serves as a great time for adult children to check the home of their elderly parents for any potential hazards.  

Falls in the home cause more injuries to the elderly than anything else. So make sure cords, and cables are out of the way, and make sure rugs are secured to the floor to prevent trips and falls.

Tim Frances from the Madison Home Instead Senior Care office sat down with Amber Noggle to discuss more ways on how to keep your elderly loved one safe.
