How to Make Your Aging Parents Home Safe
There’s a common assumption that older adults are more at risk of getting injured when they leave their home; however, the reality is the complete opposite. Most falls, accidents, and injuries to the elderly happen in their own home, despite it being the place they’re most comfortable in. Often, your parent is so used to their surroundings that they aren’t necessarily as vigilant as they should be.

If you’ve decided that your parent is capable enough to continue living in their own home, here are a few tips on how to safeguard their health.

Aging at home can be extremely important to seniors who are still safe and capable to do so. The risk of aging at home is loneliness and isolation. As their caregiver, it will be up to you to ensure that they are still engaging with friends and family, still participating in brain boosting activities like puzzles or crosswords, and still exercising and maintaining mobility. Should you feel it is time for your loved one to enter a retirement facility, our team at Carefor is here to help provide affordable retirement care that feels just like home.
