“Being Safe When They Live With You” 

Even though your loved one lives with you doesn’t mean they are one hundred percent safe. You can’t be with them 24/7! So, here are some questions for you. 

  • Can your elder get your attention from any room in the house? 
  • Are all areas well lit and free from clutter? 
  • Are you using colour to mark stairs and room doors.

“How To Prevent Most Falls” 

A fall can be devastating for your loved one. Thousands of seniors die each year from injuries caused by falls. Here are some ideas to help prevent your elder from falling. 

  • Don’t allow your elder to become a couch potato. Inactivity will cause muscles to become weak. The old saying works here (Use It or Lose It). 
  • After sitting for a while, they should stand still for a few minutes before walking. 
  • Check your loved one’s feet regularly for any problems.  
  • Lighting is crucial for safe walking and other activities.  
  • It’s very important to keep a proper seasonal temperature.
