Senior Care in Rochester: Home Safety Tips for Seniors
With our dedicated senior care, Visiting Angels® Rochester works hard to create safer home lives for local seniors. We offer flexible assistance around the home to minimize fall risks, assist with memory issues, and add more comfort to their daily lives. In addition to our direct assistance, we'd also like to help by suggesting some crucial home modifications you can make to improve home safety.
Falls often happen in the bath or shower, so grab bars and non-slip mats are essential. These safety measures are especially important for those with mobility issues, but can be useful for all seniors.
Lighting is another big issue when it comes to home safety. With the constant risk of falls, it's important for seniors to see where they are going. You should encourage your loved one to sleep with a flashlight on their nightstand, and to utilize night lights in their bedroom. This will make those late night trips to the bathroom much safer.
With the use of sharp objects and heavy pots and pans, kitchen lighting is also very important. If your loved one is still cooking their own meals, consider installing lights with higher wattage to make sure they can see what they are doing.
In general, your goal with these home modifications should be to reduce fall risks, remove clutter, and make sure they have proper lighting throughout their home. By taking these steps, you can reduce the possibility of a dangerous in-home accident.
