Residents of several NY counties can grab a free fall prevention kit, which includes a guide, night light, refrigerator magnet, and more. If you don't live in one of the areas, you may want to contact your local hospital or geriatric outreach center to see if they have something similar available.

Although this offer is fairly restrictive to areas, I thought it offered a great opportunity to blog about things you would want to include in a kit of this sort. If you wanted to take it one step farther, you (or your group) could even find a creative way to make these kits to give away to others.
