There are many parts of the home that can become more difficult to handle as people grow older. From steep stairs to stiff doors, small things can begin to have a big impact on someone’s quality of life, but for a young and able-bodied person, these difficulties can be hard to spot. Find out how to create a safe and healthy home for older people with the help of this informative video from Comfort Keepers.
You’ll hear about some of the most common risks faced by elderly people, such as unexpected accidents or an inability to properly administer medicines. The video also discusses the importance of introducing a care plan as early as possible, to minimise risks in the future. By minimising the chances of problems occurring in the home and putting precautions in place, you can rest assured that your elderly friends or relatives are happier and more comfortable.
A variety of new technologies can be installed in homes to provide better care for elderly people, including things like stair lifts or grab handles for bathrooms. Another good way to promote safety in the home is to engage a home care provider who will frequently visit and check on the wellbeing of the inhabitants.
