• Client: University Health Network, Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Program
  • Role: Design, illustration
  • Challenge: One third of adults over the age of 65 fall each year, putting them at risk of injury and hospitalization. A group of physio and occupational therapists wanted to create a document to help their senior patients learn how to prevent falls after they were discharged from the hospital.
  • Solution: The group identified guidelines to preventing falls in each area of a home. Simple, easy to understand images were created for each home area to illustrate the guidelines. The images address higher rates of low health literacy in older adults, as well as issues of poor eyesight and language barriers that some people may experience.
