Invest in Your Feet and Fall-Proof Your Home

The soles of your shoes might be some of the most dangerous things in your home. Betty was in her late 80s. As she was going about her normal routine, she started to walk down her carpeted stairs while wearing leather slippers with smooth soles. So smooth, in fact, they caused her to slip and tumble the whole way down. She survived with some nasty bruises and a gash in her leg. She’s one of the lucky ones. Falls are the No. 1…
