Fall Risk and Home Safety in Bergen County, NJ and the Surrounding Areas
Ensuring the safety of elders in their homes is a major concern. As they age, they may find it increasingly challenging to manage their living spaces. Caregivers play a crucial role in enhancing home safety by implementing preventive measures and addressing potential issues. This might involve removing potential hazards from their homes or ensuring that appliances are turned off when not in use.
Our team will evaluate items such as area rugs, low tables, and ottomans to identify possible safety risks. We will also check for cords and wires, install non-slip flooring, and address any other potential trip hazards.
Our team recognizes that simplifying living arrangements can greatly enhance elders’ home safety. Common solutions include installing bathroom grab bars since many in-home falls happen in the bathroom. Additionally, our team frequently provides easy-to-access seating options. This includes kitchen and shower stools, along with a bench near the front entrance for putting on shoes, making it easier for seniors to cook, bathe, and manage their daily tasks independently.
We are committed to significantly improving the safety of your loved ones’ homes and take pride in prioritizing elder safety.
