  • Make sure all rooms and outdoor areas have good lighting.
  • Clear away any unused items and remove small rugs, electrical cords, and other similar items a person may trip over.
  • Make sure stairs have at least one handrail and mark the edges of steps with brightly colored tape to make them more visible.
