Senior Care in Happy Valley
Home Safety Tips for Seniors
At Visiting Angels® Gresham, we know how important it is to help local seniors retain their home lives. Our senior care in Happy Valley provides added safety and comfort while easing the burden on family care providers. To help you deliver the safest possible home life for your loved one, we'd also like to point out some quick and easy alterations you can make to their home. Since so many seniors experience disastrous falls in the bathroom, our focus will remain on this area.
To prevent slipping when they exit the shower, place a non-slip mat nearby. This simple addition will negate the hazardous and wet conditions that cause so many bathroom falls. Another way to combat this problem, is to have a grab bar installed inside the bathing area. You should also add one of these next to the toilet. This will give them something stable to lean on as they lower themselves and make those dangerous steps into the wet shower.
Another way to make their life safer and easier is to make sure their thermostat is properly regulated. The water should never get hotter than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You should also make sure the faucets are clearly labeled so they can easily distinguish between hot and cold.
Taking the time to make these adjustments will set them up for more comfort and security throughout their daily routine. A safer setting along with our dedicated support will allow them to remain at home as long as possible, enjoying the privacy, comfort, and dignity they deserve.
