The Safety Superheroes can play an important role in teaching children, parents, grandparents and friends how to make their homes and communities safer for everyone, especially those most at risk from a fall.
If you would like to bring the Safety Superheroes Fall Prevention Program into your home, then the suggestions and downloadable resources below will help you to do that.
STEP 1 – Borrow or purchase a copy of Safety Superheroes: Preventing Grandparents From Falling. Your local library or your school library may have copies to borrow, or you can purchase your own copy in English, French or Chinese (click here to find out where).
STEP 2 – Get comfortable, and read through the book together.
STEP 3 – Work your way through the Safety Superhero Challenge at the back of the book, or PRINT THE CHALLENGE & CHECKLIST PAGES if you have borrowed your book. That way you can check off the items in the checklist for yourself.
STEP 4 – Complete the Safety Superheroes fall prevention checklist, making your own house safer as you go!
STEP 5 – Download the SAFETY SUPERHEROES FALL PREVENTION CERTIFICATE and print one for each person in your house who has completed the challenge!
STEP 6 – Identify people in your life who may be at risk, and if they are willing, help them make their house safer by going through the Safety Superheroes fall prevention checklist at their house.
