In Home Care in Shawnee
Age in Place With These Home Upgrades
At Visiting Angels® Midwest City, we understand the value of an extended home life. With our in home care, Shawnee area seniors can avoid the assisted living facility and enjoy the comforts of aging in place. Staying at home means more privacy and independence along with a greater sense of control over their daily life. However, as their abilities decline, safety risks increase. In addition to our helpful in home support, we also encourage you to make some home upgrades to increase safety.
Aside from securing our care, the most significant way to increase their safety is to cut down on fall risks in the home. This starts with the bathroom, as it's easy for many seniors to slip and fall in the tub or shower. These falls can have huge consequences that permanently impact their health. We recommend putting in grab bars in the tub or shower, along with non-slip mats on the floor.
If it's possible to make the upgrade to a walk-in shower unit, this can make things a lot easier for those with limited mobility. Additional upgrades include installing a hand-held shower head, adding more lights in the home, and restructuring kitchen essentials to be within easy reach.
With reduced fall risks and the helpful support of one of our caregivers, your relative will have a safer home environment where they can live with comfort, dignity, and independence.
