Tips for Creating a Safe Home Environment

  1. Eliminate Tripping Hazards: Remove clutter, secure loose rugs, and ensure that all walkways are clear of obstacles. Install handrails or grab bars in key areas, such as stairs and bathrooms, to provide extra support.
  2. Improve Lighting: Make sure all areas of the home are well-lit, particularly hallways, staircases, and entrances. Consider installing motion-activated lights or nightlights to help guide your loved one during the night.
  3. Install Safety Devices: Equip the home with essential safety devices, such as smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and non-slip mats in the bathroom. Regularly test and maintain these devices to ensure they are functioning correctly.
  4. Organise and Label: Keep frequently used items within easy reach and label cabinets and drawers to help your loved one locate items more easily. This can be particularly helpful for those experiencing memory issues or cognitive decline.
  5. Adapt the Living Space: Make necessary modifications to the home, such as installing a walk-in shower or a stairlift, to accommodate your loved one’s changing needs and abilities.
