Maintaining Home Safety for Older Adults
Most adults as they move into their senior years have a strong desire to stay in their own homes. It is what is most familiar to them and where so many of their most treasured memories are housed. But wanting to stay in their own home and it being a safe place to stay may be two very different things.
Oftentimes individuals can stay in their homes much longer if they think ahead and plan ahead on making their home as safe as possible for them to comfortably live in. This may require some modifications and changes but it can all be worth it if it results in a safer environment. These modifications often cost far less than moving into a senior living community.
