The Impact of Clutter on Seniors

We’ve all experienced times in our life when housekeeping takes a backseat, such as a new baby in the home, the start of the school year, or beginning a new job. With little time, we adjust and get back into the routine. So why is clutter a bigger issue for the senior community?

First and foremost, clutter can be an indication of underlying issues. Physical changes such as arthritis can make vacuuming and taking out the garbage painful. Forgetting to do the laundry or go through the mail can be early signs of dementia. Depression can also be a factor, leading to a loss of initiative.

Whatever the cause, clutter puts seniors at greater risk of falling, which is already the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in seniors in America. Even more troubling is that if a senior falls once, their risk of future falls doubles.
