Senior Care in Chicago: Home Safety Tips for Seniors
If you want to create a safer home life for your loved one, our senior care is the right choice. At Visiting Angels® Chicago, we provide customized assistance in the homes of local seniors to help them avoid falls, manage daily self-care, keep up with household chores, and more. The goal of our service is to keep them living at home instead of in a care facility, allowing them to enjoy privacy, dignity, and peace as they age in place.
To help us build a safer home environment for your loved one, we'd like to recommend some kitchen upgrades you can make to increase safety in this space. If your loved one is still preparing their own meals, be sure to organize their kitchen essentials so they have easy access. For pots and pans, you can add wall hooks. For spices and other cooking essentials, make sure they are on shelves that are easy to reach.
A great way to help on a regular basis is to check out the contents of their fridge and remove expired items. For seniors with memory issues, eating spoiled food by accident is a real concern. If you can pop in once a week to clean out the fridge, you can reduce the risk of food poisoning.
By providing your loved one with an organized kitchen with fresh food and easy access to all the things they need, you can reduce the potential for falls and other issues in this commonly used portion of the home. We are eager to work with you to get into more details about how we can improve home safety and create the most comfortable home life for your loved one.
