Safety Tips For Seniors

When our loved ones choose to age at home, it's only natural to fret about their safety. The challenges of aging can make it increasingly difficult to move around the home safely. Some of these changes can occur overnight—while others may be so subtle, no one realizes at first. For families in Claremont, our senior care agency makes it easier to get support for your loved one. 

In addition to caregiver services, Visiting Angels® Upland helps families set up fall prevention measures and other assistance for seniors. Let's take a look at a few tips for boosting safety around the home. 

How To Improve Safety Around The Home 

Aging in place doesn't have to be difficult for seniors in Claremont—especially if the right type of support is set up. Senior care is just one of the precautions you can take to make it easier for a family member living alone. Here's what else you can do: 

  • Audit difficult tasks. Many seniors don't realize that everyday tasks are becoming more and more challenging. It's worthwhile to spend some time with your loved one, evaluating which tasks they struggle with. Are household tasks like cleaning or cooking more difficult? Do they still have excellent vision? This initial consideration will help you define where they need help and what can be improved.
  • Do a house clean. Our homes often contain a lifetime's worth of items, including furniture, clothes, documents and books. Over the years, we may outgrow these items, or they may no longer serve their initial function. Whatever the case, try to do a top-to-bottom house clean with your loved one's input. Can some clothes be removed from their closet? Can certain unwieldy furniture pieces get donated?  
  • Incorporate safety features. When the house is a little clearer, it's time to consider what can be added in. Think about those areas where your loved one is struggling. If they're having difficulty with mobility, grab bars in the bathroom and bedroom can be incredibly useful. As a general rule, increasing overall lighting will often make a big difference. Think about adding non-slip mats and other features where needed, too.
