In Home Care in Buffalo Grove
Age in Place With These Home Upgrades
At Visiting Angels® Arlington Heights, we offer in home care to Buffalo Grove area seniors. In addition to our loving and compassionate service, we are also happy to share some helpful advice for creating a safer home that allows your loved one to age in place.
Limiting fall risks around the home is critical, so bathroom grab bars, non-slip flooring, and railing on the stairs are great upgrades. We also recommend adding more lighting throughout the home to help your loved one navigate the space without tripping over unseen hazards.
Since many accidents happen in the shower, it might be wise to invest in a walk-in unit. A much simpler step towards enhanced shower safety is to install a hand held shower head, which makes bathing much easier for those with limited mobility.
Arthritis is quite common among the elderly, so twist style door knobs should be replaced with levers. For sinks, you might consider light sensor faucets, as they require no contact.
Another great way to simplify their daily home life is to reorganize kitchen cabinets. It's most helpful to have the often used items between hip and shoulder level.
Taking advantage of some or all of these home upgrade tips, along with hiring one of our compassionate in home caregivers, is the best way to help your loved one in Buffalo Grove avoid the assisted care facility and live an extended home life. We are proud to help local seniors carry on with more dignity, privacy, comfort, and safety.
