Senior Care in Phoenix
Home Safety Tips for Seniors
At Visiting Angels® Medford, the goal of our senior care is to help Phoenix area seniors live safer lives in their own homes. We accomplish this by providing detailed in-home care designed around their specific needs. To improve safety even further, we also encourage family members to make some simple home alterations to create more convenience throughout the space.
Falls result from all types of normal activities. To help your loved one avoid injury risk throughout their daily life, you can organize their home so they have easy and safe access to everything they need. Starting with the kitchen, consider adding hooks on the wall for pots and pans. This will allow them to easily grab and put away these commonly-used items.
The same goes for spices and other food products they use on a daily basis. Make sure they are on shelves that your loved one can access without reaching upward or bending down. Medications in the bathroom should be organized with the same idea in mind.
Another major way to improve the convenience in their home, is to make sure they have easy access to light switches. In the living room, you can rearrange their furniture so that they can reach the light switch from their favorite chair. As an alternative, you could install a 'clapper' system or some kind of remote lighting.
For those late night trips to the bathroom, a flashlight on the nightstand will help them easily illuminate their path and avoid any tripping obstacles.
In general, they should have quick access to everything they need without straining their body in any way. This will reduce the potential for life-altering falls and allow them to continue living safely in their own home.
