What to Do If You Fall

  • Don’t Panic: Stay quiet for a minute and assess the situation.
  • Make a decision whether or not to get up.

If you do try to get up:

  • Use stable furniture for help.
  • Take time to recover.
  • Tell someone you had a fall. Seek medical advice if necessary.

If you can’t get up:

  • Try sliding or crawling to seek help.
  • Try to access a phone, front door, personal alarm, mobile phone, or even an open window or door to make a loud noise or yell for help.
  • Make yourself comfortable and warm until help arrives.
