Promoting Home Safety for Senior Citizens

Create a safety home environment.There are different levels as to how you can make your home more senior citizen-friendly. While it is ideal to address all your elderly loved one’s needs with various home improvement projects, not all changes can be accommodated by your home.
Here are some simple developments that you can consider:
  • Check the doors in every room, especially those the the senior often uses — oil the hinges and plane the top and bottom edges for an easier swing.
  • Opt for a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub, and place/install non-slip mats and grab bars to make the bathroom more accessible and safe.
  • Keep important things reachable for the elderly, particularly for those with physical ailments — store them in lower compartments.
