Senior Care in Sugar Land: Home Safety Tips for Seniors
With our senior care, Visiting Angels® Sugar Land provides the in-home support many seniors need to live safely in their own homes. Along with our one-on-one assistance, we would also like to provide you with some crucial advice for minimizing fall hazards and other injury risks for your loved one. Since many falls happen in the bathroom, it's important to pay special attention to this area.
Given the slippery surfaces of a shower or bathroom floor, it's no wonder so many falls happen in the bathroom. To improve safety, the first step is to add non-slip mats. These surfaces can make it much easier to enter and exit the tub or shower. With the same goal in mind, we also encourage you to add grab bars inside the shower, as well as next to the toilet. This safety addition is absolutely crucial for seniors, as a slip and fall in the shower or getting off the toilet can be catastrophic.
Another major boost to bathroom safety is to make sure their daily medication is within comfortable reach. If it is too high or too low, accessing it can put unnecessary strain on your loved one, and leave them vulnerable to enhanced fall risks.
If you follow these simple steps, you can set up a more convenient and accessible bathroom environment where they can safely bathe and carry out normal daily tasks without fear. Combine these safety additions with our caring and attentive service, and you get a formula for a safe and comfortable extended home life.
