Home Safety Tips for Seniors

If you’ve noticed Mom and Dad forgetting things they used to remember with ease, it may be time to think about hiring senior care in Owosso. Many aging parents choose to retire in place and stay in their lifelong home. It’s easy to see why—it holds so many memories and mementos. In addition to those treasures, it may also hold some hidden safety risks if maintenance has fallen by the wayside. The following safety tips, combined with senior care from Visiting Angels® East Lansing can give the whole family peace of mind.  

Senior Care Home Safety Checklist

When the decades go by, it’s easy to forget a few routine home maintenance chores. These are a few smart safety tips to make sure the family home is as safe as possible. 

  • Clean your dryer lint trap
  • Inspect your furnace yearly
  • Check the batteries on your smoke detectors
  • Install a carbon monoxide detector
  • Make sure fire extinguishers are accessible

These maintenance tips reduce fire risk as well as harmful fume risk. That adds up to valuable peace of mind for your family. If these chores are ignored and an accident happens, your parents may panic. Alarm can lead to disorientation, increased heart rate, and a higher chance of falling. Taking steps before an accident occurs can protect your parents’ safety longer.
