Home Safety Tips for Seniors

As your loved one continues living independently, you want to make sure they are safe. Unfortunately, many falls and injuries among seniors happen in their own homes. By helping create a safe space for your loved one, you can have peace of mind. If they also need help with daily tasks, our senior care in Polk County can help. Our team at Visiting Angels® Albany OR is here to meet your loved one's needs.

You may be wondering why your loved one's home could be unsafe. Many seniors deal with mental and physical challenges daily. This can make it difficult for them to clean their homes. With cluttered walkways and rooms, falls can be more likely. It is also common for seniors in older homes to lack grab bars, proper lighting, and ample walking space.

Here are five tips for safety in your loved one's home:

  • Remove throw rugs or use double-sided tape to secure them to the floor.
  • Install grab bars around toilets, showers, and bathtubs.
  • Use nightlights in hallways and high-traffic areas for better visibility.
  • Ensure smoke detectors are working.
  • Make sure frequently-used items are easy to access.
