How to Help Aging Parents Stay at Home
For seniors who live alone, it can be difficult to keep up with daily life. In order to improve the safety and comfort of your senior parent, there are a few steps you can take. However, the most important element in a safe and stable home life is to make sure they have the right amount of support. With our in home care services, Visiting Angels® Eugene is ready to provide the help you need.
In addition to our support around the house, we are also happy to share our advice about creating a better living situation for your loved one. By securing our support and following the tips outlined below, you can maximize their chances of remaining at home and avoiding the move to a care facility.
3 Tips to Help Your Elderly Loved One Remain at Home
- Create a Safer Living Space. Although we will be there to help, it is still important to minimize fall risks and create a safer living environment. You can do this by cutting down on clutter, keeping their home more organized, and adding better lighting in every room. Another key safety measure is to add non-slip mats and handrails inside the bathroom.
- Keep Up With Their Medical Needs. As your loved one's mental abilities decline, they are going to rely on you more and more to help them follow medication protocols and other doctors' advice. It really helps to go with them in person to a doctor's visit so you can learn about their needs directly.
- Utilize Some Type of Emergency Service. We recommend setting them up with a wearable medical device that allows them to call for emergency help without getting up. If they happen to suffer a fall when neither you nor their caregiver is around, this device can make all the difference.
