The number of seniors being hospitalized due to falls is quite high. Due to their conditions, even doing simple tasks at home is not safe for them. That is why we are here to help.
- Install additional light fixtures in dark areas of the house. Most seniors have poor eyesight so stepping on something that may cause them to fall is not impossible.
- Keep the house clean and organized. Get rid of wires and cables which can most likely cause them to trip. If there are spills, clean them immediately. And also, organize their essentials in places they can easily reach and grab.
- Purchase bathroom safety devices for support. Since the bathroom is wet and slippery, it isn’t the best place for seniors. Buy raised toilet seats so they don’t have to bend too low, grab bars to help them stand, and shower chairs so they can sit down while bathing.
- Hire companion care services. Sometimes, all they need is someone to look after them. If you are busy with errands, school, or work, you can ask for professional assistance. They will make sure your senior is safe so you don’t have to worry.
