Senior Care in Des Plaines
Home Safety Tips for Seniors
Most seniors want to stay in their home throughout their retirement. If your loved one has taken a fall recently at home, it may be time to think about hiring senior care in Des Plaines. The compassionate caregivers with Visiting Angels® Arlington Heights can help you rehabilitate so you can resume independent living more quickly.
Fall Hazards To Address
A significant fall can disrupt your golden years. The hospital stay may cost thousands and your mobility may be affected for months on end. Here are some fall hazards seniors need to keep in mind:
- Electrical Cords
- Area Rugs
- Pet Toys
- Door Thresholds
- Pavement cracks
- Low Tables
Everyone loves their four-legged friends, but their toys can be a trip and fall hazard when they’re strewn around the house. Keep a toy basket to house them safely. Put anti-slip mats under rugs to secure them and route cords behind furniture. If you’re worried about a fall in the bathroom, install a grab bar in the shower or by the toilet.
