Did you know that President Obama’s mother-in-law recently moved into the White House? Seniors from all over the country are now moving back in with their children to receive in-home care directly from their relatives.
The team at in-home care company Neighborly Home Care has noticed this national trend taking place. It is a trend that is helping seniors save their pension money while allowing multiple generations to live together in a safe and comfortable care-focused home environment. Safety and security are especially important for seniors with memory problems and health complications.
Moreover, statistics from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons show that, “one in every three Americans older than 65 experiences a fall, making it the leading cause of injuries to seniors.” Neighborly Home Care encourages seniors who are currently living on their own to consider moving in with their children/extended family or hiring a professional caregiver.
Help seniors take precautions by accident-proofing their homes. The following tips will give you a better idea of some ways that you can do so.
With some minor adjustments, you can make your loved one much safer. Elimination of potential tripping risks is a big step toward reducing a senior’s vulnerability to serious falls or other accidents.
All caregivers from Neighborly Home Care are certified nursing assistants or have received equivalent training and passed a nurse aid skills assessment test.
