Home safety is critical for seniors as it helps prevent accidents, injuries, and illnesses. Seniors are more susceptible to falls and injuries due to decreased mobility, balance, and coordination, which you can also remedy with the help of professional caregivers. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for seniors aged 65 and above. Here are some reasons why home safety is vital for seniors:
- Prevent Falls
Home aides will help you take some steps to prevent falls, such as removing clutter, installing grab bars, and ensuring proper lighting, which can reduce the risk of falling and potentially suffering from severe injuries.
- Maintain Independence
Ensuring that seniors have a safe and secure environment in their homes will help them maintain their independence and reduce the risk of hospitalization or long-term care.
- Peace of Mind
Having a companion and a home that is safe and secure can provide peace of mind for both seniors and their families, knowing that they are less likely to experience accidents or injuries.
Investing in home safety modifications is a cost-effective way to reduce the risk of injuries, hospitalization, and long-term care costs.
