Elderly Home Safety

The home should be a place of security and refuge, not a place of hazards and accidents. As providers of in-home care for the elderly and disabled, we at Griswold are passionate about making the homes of your loved ones safe. This week, we’re going to give you some tips to make your loved one’s home a safe home.

But first, how do you know if your loved one needs a safe-home improvement? Consider the following questions:

  1. Has he or she had one or more falls recently?
  2. Do you leave his or her home feeling unsure and uneasy?
  3. Does he or she live alone without neighbors who visit often?

You probably know in your heart whether or not your loved one’s home needs to be improved for safety, but answering “yes” to those questions is also a good indicator.

Don’t worry, it’s not hard! Check back soon for tips to make your loved one’s home safer.
