Many older adults prefer to age in place or remain in their homes to recover than move to senior care communities. That is why it is important to do some home modifications to make it safer for your senior loved ones to move around.
Here are some tips that you need to follow:
- Use levers on doors than doorknobs to make it easier for seniors to open doors.
- Prioritize fall prevention by removing any clutters, movable rugs, or carpets on the floor.
- Provide adequate lighting in some parts of your house, especially the bathroom.
- Give extra attention to bathroom safety by installing grab bars, putting nonskid bathmats, shower seats, handheld showers, etc.
