Measures Promoting Safety at Home

Seniors can be vulnerable to hazards, fall risks, accidents, and other unexpected events that may cause injuries. It is the time they must not be left alone. They may need companionship in Maryland.

Is a senior loved one fragile and might be needing non-medical home care in Aberdeen, Maryland? Here are five essential safety measures to keep seniors safe at home:

  • Fall Prevention
    Install handrails and grab bars in bathrooms and near stairs. Remove tripping hazards, such as loose rugs or clutter, and use non-slip flooring in bathrooms and kitchen.
  • Adequate Lighting
    Ensure well-lit pathways, especially in hallways and staircases. Use nightlights to assist with nighttime navigation.
  • Medication Management
    Organize and label medications clearly. Consider pill organizers and automated medication dispensers. Maintain a medication schedule with the help of your caregivers. These are especially important for pain management, maintenance, etc.
  • Emergency Preparedness
    Provide seniors with easy access to a phone or a wearable emergency alert system. Agape Love Home Care suggests posting emergency contact information prominently and having a clear evacuation plan in case of fire or other emergencies. Transportation is also a factor to consider.
  • Regular Check-Ins
    Arrange for regular visits from family, friends, or caregivers. Use technology for remote monitoring if available and opt for personal care in Maryland from a reliable agency as needed. 

These measures help create a safer living environment for seniors. However, it is crucial to adapt them to individual needs and regularly assess and update safety measures as necessary. Call us now.
