February is Senior Independence Month!

Dudley's Home Healthcare - Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Growing older sometimes means that living on your own and taking care of yourself can become more difficult. This is just one of the many reasons why it is important to celebrate Senior Independence Month. Personal independence establishes comfort and confidence so you should consider ways to make your senior loved one’s living space safer and more accommodating for them.

Some suggestions include:

  • Ensure that all walkways and floors are clear of clutter, such as books, clothes and trash.
  • Make sure that every room is well lit, and that all light bulbs are working. Night-lights can help improve nighttime visibility so installing these around the house can prevent falls.
  • Check to see if handrails or grab bars are installed in the restrooms and using non-slip mats can help to prevent falls as well.
  • Make sure that everything is easily accessible. If items are out of reach then move them to the lower level shelves.

At Dudley’s Home Health, we strive to help seniors maintain their independence and live comfortably in their own homes. If you have a loved one who may require some assistance, please contact us to discuss our home health care services.
