Home Safety and Senior Safety in Fort Myers, FL and the Surrounding Areas
Home safety is a major worry for elders. They may grow less capable of managing the house as they age. Caregivers can assist make their home a safer place by implementing preventative measures and addressing any issues. This could entail removing potentially harmful items from the home or ensuring that all appliances are turned off when not in use.
Area rugs, electrical cords, low tables, and ottomans are examples of potential risks that our team will assess. Our staff will inspect the area for cords and wires, nonslip flooring, and any other potential trip hazards.
Our team understands that making things as simple as possible for elders can significantly improve their home security. Adding bathroom grab bars is a common solution, as many in-home falls occur in the bathroom. Another popular strategy employed by our team is to provide easy and accessible seating. Kitchen and shower stools, as well as a bench near the front entrance for putting shoes on, make it easier for seniors to cook and bathe independently.
We can significantly improve home safety for your loved ones, and we take pride in prioritizing senior safety.
