Senior Home Safety Improvement Tips

Celebrating National Senior Independence Month February is National Senior Independence Month. This is a great time to reevaluate your current lifestyle so you can stay healthy and well in your home for years to come! Check out this reference guide for home safety and health tips for continued independence. HOME SAFETY IMPROVEMENT TIPS II The following tips can help you live safely and independently in your own home. EASY ACCESS GRAB BARS All of your belongings should be within an arm's reach so you can easily grab whatever you needy. This may include moving items to lower shelves in the kitchen, organizing desk drawers and keeping cabinets clutter free. Install handrails and grab bars throughout your home to make moving around easier if mobility is an issue. Grab bars can be particularly helpful in your bathroom near the bathtub, shower and toilet. CLEAR THE FLOOR LIGHTEN UP Remove unnecessary items off the floor so you can reduce your risk of tripping and falling in your home. Replace burned out light bulbs and plug in night-lights around your home so you can see better at night or if you wake up and get out of bed in the dark. HEALTH CHECK 101 DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT STAY ACTIVE Schedule a checkup with your family doctor to monitor your current health status. Daily exercise can reduce your risk of injury, improve balance and strength, and can also keep you mobile. STOCK UP GET SOCIAL Be sure to have incontinence supplies, medication and food in stock at your home for emergencies, such as bad weather or power outages, when you can't get to the store. Talk with friends and family regularly for fun social engagement and to stay connected with loved ones. Celebrate National Senior Independence Month this February and take what you learn with you throughout the rest of the year! 855-289-3427 DiaperBuys DiaperBuys.com
