Three Home Upgrades For Aging In Place
For seniors who wish to remain at home, it's easier than ever to ensure they can live with comfort, dignity, and independence. In home care services in Anderson can take over many of the difficult tasks. Delivery services can ensure they don't have to travel to get groceries or meals. Home upgrades can also help them remain independent for longer.
At Visiting Angels® Redding, we help seniors live at home safely and conveniently. We can help you assess your loved one's needs, making sure they have the right level of support in place. Let's take a look at how to upgrade the home for aging in place.
How To Improve These 3 Areas Of The Home
Upgrading the home doesn't have to be expensive. Instead, simple adjustments throughout key areas can make a big difference. Here are three areas to focus on:
- The bathroom. Unfortunately, many slips and falls occur in the bathroom. But a few key features can help to improve overall navigation. Grab bars are one of the first places to start: think about installing these in the shower and by the toilet. Consider investing in a shower seat as well. You may also want to raise the height of the toilet seat for greater ease.
- The kitchen. Over time, the kitchen can become increasingly difficult to use for seniors. It's worth considering in home care in Anderson, so a caregiver can handle kitchen tasks that your loved one may struggle with. You'll want to make sure crucial items are stored in easy-to-reach places. Think about replacing cupboards with DIY pull-out shelving. Make sure lighting is bright and even throughout.
- The bedroom. It's important to make sure your loved one can maneuver around the bedroom with minimal difficulty. Add non-slip pads below carpeting or rugs. Think about adding a rail near the bed, so getting out of bed is easier. An armchair might be a great addition for seniors who struggle with getting dressed. That way, they can sit down and take their time.
