Age in Place with These Home Upgrades

In home care offers assistance and companionship at home, allowing seniors the ability to age in place, even when experiencing physical or mental health changes. At Visiting Angels® Akron, we also recommend investing in a few easy and inexpensive home upgrades. 

While these five modifications may seem small, they can make your home safer and more comfortable:

  1. Replace “grip and twist” knob-style door handles with lever-style handles.   
  2. Install a handheld shower head that can be adjusted for use when sitting or standing.
  3. Add cushioned, non-slip mats to high-traffic areas such as hallways, bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. 
  4. Introduce Smart Technology, such as an Alexa virtual assistant or Ring doorbell, to automate various tasks around the home, set reminders, check the weather, play music, lock doors, or check who’s ringing the doorbell.
  5. Consider installing a ramp to create a no-step entrance to your home. While essential for those using a wheelchair, a ramp can also benefit those with arthritis or limited mobility.

How In Home Care Helps Seniors Remain Independent

At Visiting Angels Akron, every client in our care has their own unique set of needs and circumstances. For that reason, we offer our services “a la carte” and create our customized care plans from the ground up. This level of personalization ensures your loved one will always have the support they need without paying for extra services they wouldn’t use. 

Equally important, we offer a nearly endless list of services through our Life Care Navigation™ program. Some of our most frequently requested services include mobility assistance, help with bathing and toileting, transportation, medication reminders, and light housekeeping. Our caregivers also provide comforting companionship to boost spirits and ease feelings of loneliness.
