Home Safety Services for Elders in Richmond, VA and the Surrounding Areas of Chesterfield County
Home safety is a primary concern for elders. They may grow less capable of managing the home as they age. Caregivers can make their home safer by applying preventative measures and managing potential issues. This may involve removing potentially harmful items from the home and turning off all appliances when not in use.
Potential dangers, such as area rugs, low tables, and ottomans, will be evaluated by our staff in Richmond, VA and the surrounding area. Our team will analyze the environment for trip hazards, including cords and wires, nonslip flooring, and any other potential trip hazards.
Our staff realizes that making tasks as simple as possible for elders can significantly improve their home safety. Installing bathroom grab bars is a common practice because many falls occur in the restroom. Providing easy-to-reach seating is another popular tactic employed by our staff. Accessible seating such as kitchen and shower stools and a bench near the front entrance for putting on shoes make it easier for elders to cook, bathe and handle daily tasks alone.
We can significantly boost the safety of your loved ones’ home, and we take pride in putting elder safety first.
