Slip slidin’ away.......
Slip slidin’ away...
My best friend’s elderly mother recently took at spill getting out of her bath. She actually had one of those special sit-down tubs with a door to make it easier to get in and out of with hand rails in case of a slip. However, when she was out of the tub and reached for her towel, she hit a small puddle of water and went flying. The result was a broken hip. My friend’s mother was lucky that her daughter was there that day and able to call for help right away.
As the baby boomer generation passes that magic age of 65, these types of accidents are becoming more and more common.
If you are over 60 and beginning to worry about falls or, if you are worried about an aging parent who still lives alone, now is the time to do something about it, not after the fall has already happened.
You really can’t cover every hard surface with enough pillows to soften the landing but, you can make nearly every floor’s surface far less slippery, even when wet. One Posigrip® treatment eliminates the chance of slipping and falling because of a wet surface - you know, the kind you can’t avoid in a bathroom.
We recently got this testimonial from one of our commercial customers:
“Since you treated our floor in early March the difference has been dramatic. The carpets are in storage, and my customers and I can enjoy the beauty of the tile and I have peace of mind knowing my floors are as safe and close to slip-proof as possible.”
Give you and your loved ones that same peace of mind. Call your local Posigrip® representative today. 1-480-748-3935
