The question is what do you wear on your feet in the house?

2014-06-05

Did you know that a large percentage of falls occur in the home and that often it is because of ill-fitting footwear?

It has also been shown that in the elderly walking barefoot or just with sock or tights can be a risk factor for falling

Why would you take the risk of a fall and the devastating consequences it can lead to?

Foot Health professionals recommend a house shoe or supportive slipper to be worn indoors.

Most people will have their shoes fitted for them so why not have your slippers fitted as well?

Do you know what can happen to you if you happen to fall in the home let’s just say?

All because you was wearing inappropriate footwear in the home.

A broken Hip
A fracture of the back
Broken teeth
Cuts and bruises on the body.
Broken/fractured bones in the feet
Just to name a few.

All these can have devastating consequences as well as the massive inconvenience.
Take the time to look at what you are wearing indoors carefully.
If you are not sure then seek advice from a Professional.

Every year a large percentage of people will fall with potentially devastating consequences.

Many will say it “just happened.”

Often it will be due to:

Stiffness in the feet.
Toe nail problems, even as simple as toe nails being too long
Inappropriate, ill-fitting or loose footwear.

This year for  falls awareness week, the theme is healthy feet.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 people aged over 65 fall each year.

The consequences can be devastating.

Accidents can happen so easily, but many falls can be avoided by wearing correctly fitted, supportive footwear around the home. It's natural to want the comfort, warmth and easy access of slippers. Most falls that older people experience however happen within the home and such falls are often due to poorly fitting footwear, with little or no support.
