One of the three older adults falls each year. Many of them belong to at home. Some of them are dying. There are many ways to prevent people from falling in your home. Install handrails, stairs is one of them. The more handrails you have, the lower your risk of falling.

You do not have to be old to use the handrail. Children who are new to walking would have been lost without them. So should teenagers who are binding up the stairs, taking two steps at a time. Handrails are a good friend to those who have back or knee trouble. They are literally saving lives, many older people who are poor balance.

Put handrails on each stairway you have. Remember to set the handrails on both sides of these stairways. Even one more step needs a handrail. If you have a very broad stairway, put one handrail in the center.
