In Home Care in Lady Lake
Age in Place with These Home Upgrades
In growing numbers, seniors in Lady Lake, FL, are opting to age at home with in home care rather than move to assisted living. However, many homes aren’t designed with the needs of seniors in mind. Thankfully, there are simple and inexpensive modifications you can make to improve safety and accessibility in and around your home.
Start in the bathroom, where wet, slippery floors can quickly become a fall hazard. Add non-slip mats and grab bars by the bathtub, shower, and toilet for added stability. Replace fixed shower heads with adjustable, handheld shower heads for easy accessibility while sitting or standing.
In the kitchen, store frequently used items between hip and shoulder height to minimize bending and reaching. Install pull-out cabinet organizers for easier access to pots, pans, and small appliances.
Throughout the home, replace toggle-style light switches, and knob-style door handles with rocker switches and lever-style handles that are easier to use, especially for people with arthritis. Innovative technology, such as Nest thermostats, Alexa assistants, and Ring doorbells, are other quick and easy ways to automate tasks.
