GRAND RAPIDS (PORTER HILLS, WZZM) -- As we get older, it's important to put a little extra thought into making your home safe.
Nicole Maag and Judi Siegert from Porter Hills visited the WZZM13 News at Noon, to share quick fixes you can make to your home to stay safe.
In the living room you can adjust couches and chairs so they are not too low to get out of easily, and leave clear passages for walking around.
In the bathroom, they suggest installing a walk- in shower with a flush entry; even a 2 inch lip can cause a fall. You can also install grab bars by the toilet, or shower/tub.
