The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines 'aging in place' as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level."

Among the greatest threats to the ability to 'age in place' is falling. According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of death by injury among older adults. Features in a common household, such as a lack of support in the shower or bathroom, inadequate railings on the stairs, loose throw rugs, and obstructed pathways are all

possible dangers to an older person. However, simple and low-cost modifications to an older personís home can greatly decrease the risk of falling, as well as decreasing the risk of other forms of injury.

Some examples of home modifications include: ramps for accessible entry and exit, additional railings, nonskid flooring, stairlifts, home elevators, sliding shelves, increased lighting, accessible switches at both ends of the stairs, walk-in bathtubs and showers, grab bars, and handheld flexible showerheads.
