STEADI

The CDC’s Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries (STEADI) website includes information for both health-care providers and older adults about falls, how to prevent falls and, for health-care providers, key questions to ask older adult patients in order to assess falls and fall risk.


Home Safety Self-Assessment

The Home Safety-Self-Assessment Tool (HSSAT) consists of a checklist that anyone can use to identify and remove fall hazards in each room of the home. This document includes detailed instructions, the checklist, and possible ways to address each hazard, as well as a list of home modification resources in the St. Louis area.
