Keep your loved ones safe!



There are many things you can do to help keep your loved one safe and comfortable at home. They may not have mattered in the past, however if the person you care for is now unsteady on their feet, it’s important to address any risks and provide the best possible care.   

 

What steps to take about home safety if he or she has any of the following issues: 


  • Difficulties moving around without assistance.

  • Problems with balance and coordination

  • Eyesight problems

  • Confusion or other limitations.

Firstly, check your loved ones living environment and spot anything that could pose dangers. Then you’ll be able to make the changes you need to prevent accidents.


What you can do:


  • Add supporting grab-bars everywhere your loved one needs them, for example in the shower or bath, or next to the toilet. Remember to check internal and external exits.

  • Place anti-slip mats around the shower and sink. Install a special shower chair if you think it will help.

  • Consider installing an elevated toilet seat – it helps seniors to get up and down easily.

  • Make sure all areas in the home are properly lit. 

  • Move items to make it easier to reach them.

  • Arrange furniture so that there’s plenty of space to walk comfortably.
