The most common reason that people fall is that they are too dependent on their visual balance and they trip on a curb or down the stairs when they are trying to carry something. They are lots of ways that you can minimize the risk of falling such as reducing clutter, removing small mats that curl up and are a fall risk and installing grab bars in the bathroom which are critically important.
