Home Safety for the Elderly


Recently a very close elderly family member fell
down the stairs and was seriously injured.  I want to get the word out about home  safety for our elderly parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.  At age 80 over half of the seniors fall  every year according to learnnottofall.com.   There are some things we can add
to the home to help minimize the risk.



In the Kitchen:


Insure curtains are far from the kitchen range if
you have a gas range with a pilot late make sure it is equipped with an
automatic cut off in the event of flame failure.  Make sure floors are not slippery and a  light switch is located in an easy to reach location. 
Oven controls should be easy to grip and in the front of the range to the
person does not have to reach over the burners to turn the oven on. 
Oven mitts and hot pads should be kept near the range and a sturdy step
ladder is kept in a closet close by for
use.



In General:


Make sure any rugs have a non –skid pad  underneath and are not worn or torn.   Check smoke detectors and test them while the person is sleeping to
ensure they would hear the alarm in order to respond.   If not, there are smoke alarms that can be placed under the bed mattress
that would vibrate.  Make sure  electrical cords are not old and are not laying in any  walkway.



Stairways


Steps should be in good condition and free of  objects.  Sturdy handrails should  be on both sides and the stairway clearly lit.  And make sure inside doors do not swing  over stair steps. There are  electrical chairs that can be purchased so the person does not even have to  climb the stairs.  Also, look into  remodeling a room downstairs to create a bedroom for the elderly person with a  full bath that will not require them to even use  stairs.


If you have any repairs for your elderly family member or friend  that is needed in order to ensure their safety or remodel of a room and bathroom
for new living quarters call Xcalibur Remodeling.   We service the following communities:  Ashtabula, Bainbridge, Beachwood,  Bedford, Bratenhal, Burton, Chagrin Falls, Chardon, Chesterland, Cleveland,  Cleveland Heights, Eastlake, Euclid, Garfield, Garrettsville, Geneva,  Highland, Jefferson, Kirtland,

Really overwhelmed with your thoughts. Yes it is very important to make sure that our elderly family is safe at home. Especially when they are alone at home, they could become victims of crooks who aim other people without any reason.so we don’t leave them alone at home but if required then always give them important emergency numbers in case of any emergency they can call up for help.

Business phone systems are complex and require proper network setup as well as voice and data cabling for best quality and up-time.

There probably isn't a home owner in history who hasn't pondered the idea of upgrading their home furnishings. Although rearranging existing furniture can transform a boring space into a conversation space, in some cases, rearranging just isn't enough to scratch the "I want to do something different itch". For those who really like to mix it up, buying furniture that is new is often the key to redecorating success.
