Ensuring Senior Safety Around the Home

Safety is very important at any age, especially during the senior years – ensuring safety around the home for elders is very important.

Here are some tips on ensuring an elders safety in your house:

– Tripping hazards are one of the biggest concerns around the home. Because slippery hardwood floors and rugs that are not planted firmly on the floors can be very dangerous, opt to use area rugs that have foam base underneath to prevent them from moving around.

– Keep track of medications if you’re caring for a senior citizen at home. Seniors may tend to take more medications than prescribed so everything needs to be labeled and well-organized. Get a pill organizer and have a list of all the medicines and the schedule on when to take them.
