For seniors who have mobility limitations, chronic illness or experience cognitive decline, staying safe at home may require more effort and supervision from the person’s family members. If living on their own is a priority for your loved one, creating a home safety plan can help both of you sleep better at night knowing plans are in place to keep them safe.
Consider all aspects of home safety from your loved one’s point of view and make a safety plan according to their needs and limitations. Some suggestions include:
Prevent Injuries by Adapting the Home
Manage Home Maintenance
Ensure Security Measures Are in Place
Prepare for Emergencies
Your loved one’s home safety plan may likely vary from the suggestions above, depending on their needs and the resources available to you, so continue to research the best methods to ensure your loved one’s safety. Once you have developed a plan to keep them safe, execute your plan by assigning different tasks or responsibilities to family members who live nearby. You and your family will soon enjoy peace of mind from knowing your loved one is safe and sound at home.
