Home Safety and Security for Seniors
It’s understandable that people are concerned about the safety of their elderly loved ones. Seniors who have lost a few degrees of mobility and flexibility struggle with simple daily tasks, such as getting out of bed, maintaining good hygiene, keeping the house clean, and lastly, protecting and saving themselves in case of emergencies and burglaries. Here at Compassionate Home Care Services LLC, a non-medical home care in Independence, Ohio, we care about the safety and security of every seniors patient we have here.
Here are some home safety and security tips from our team that you can follow to ensure your loved one’s safety:
- Make sure that the indoor and outdoor areas of the home are well lit.
A well-lit environment can not only prevent falls but also serve as a great deterrent against potential intruders.
- Seniors are at very high risk of becoming victims to fire.
In order to prevent fires, make sure that there are smoke detectors installed in their homes. All wiring should also be checked for signs of damage. At our homecare in Ohio, our caregivers never forget to remind their senior patients of the risk of using space heaters and other similar devices.
- Many seniors take a combination of medications.
Our professionally trained carers in our healthcare in Ohio are qualified to keep track of senior’s medication. They make sure that their medication is organized; for instance, they make use of a pill organizer that is clearly labeled to prevent mismanaging medication.
