Senior Care in Strongsville
Home Safety Tips for Seniors
At Visiting Angels® Berea, our senior care offers flexible in-home service for Strongsville area seniors. Our caregivers can be there as often as needed, with full or part-time service options available. We are proud to deliver a safer, more comfortable living environment where your loved one can age in place and avoid the move to a care facility. Along with our trusted support, we'd also like to offer some suggestions for improving the safety of their living space.
When it comes to creating a safer bedroom for your loved one, convenience and simplicity are key. An uncluttered space will provide fewer fall hazards and allow your loved one to move around with confidence. Help them to clean out their closet and get rid of anything they no longer use. Also, consider getting rid of any pieces of furniture that do not service a specific purpose.
If they have throw rugs in the room, you can either remove them completely or use some form of adhesive to attach them to the floor. Since they create an uneven surface and often move around, they can create a tripping hazard. For the same reason, extension cords and other electrical cables should be stored behind furnishings.
Since your loved one may often get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, it's important that they have proper lighting. The light switch should be right next to the bed, and if not, you should consider some type of remote lighting. They can also keep a flashlight handy on their nightstand.
To summarize, you can dramatically improve the safety and convenience of their bedroom by taking basic steps that do not require a lot of time, money, or energy to put into effect. Combine these with our trusted in-home senior care in Strongsville, and you get a formula for a safe, happy, and fulfilling home life, away from the care facility.
