Home Safety Tips for Seniors

At Visiting Angels® Rochester Hills, our senior care in Troy is all about improving the safety and comfort of local seniors. Our goal is to keep your loved one living in their own home and out of the care facility for as long as possible. In order to help us in this effort, we encourage you to take the time to reduce fall hazards around their home. 

Seniors can trip or slip during any normal daily activity. These falls can lead to broken bones and a permanent decline in their physical health. To avoid these terrible accidents, it's important to remove clutter from their home. Seniors can trip over furniture, uneven floor surfaces as well as clothing or other items left on the floor. To combat this problem, your first step should be to help them organize their possessions and get rid of stuff they no longer need. 

Throw rugs are another source of possible danger, since they are loose and create an uneven floor surface. Consider removing them from their home, or if that's not an option, taping them to the floor so that they are stationary. 

Another terrific way to reduce injury risk, is to check all of their chairs for stability. If you find any furniture items with loose legs, you should fix or replace them. 

For bathroom safety, grab bars and non-slip mats are absolutely essential. These items will severely reduce fall risks in this wet and slippery environment. Grab bars should be placed inside the bathing area and next to the toilet, and non-slip mats should be placed just outside the shower or tub. 

If you follow these steps and hire our professional in-home support, you can create a safe, comfortable home life for your loved one.
