Home Security for elderly family members

Elderly and infant family members are the most at risk of injury at home. One big reason, is they are more at risk of falling and injuring themselves. People tend to fall and hurt themselves much more as they age.  Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall and every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall. Additionally, older people are much more likely to die as a result of a fire. For example people aged people aged 65-74 are twice as likely to die in a home fire, while people aged 75-84 are four times more likely to die in a fire.
