Lawrenceville, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2019 -- Goodwill Home Medical, the leading provider of gently-used donated medical supplies in Philadelphia, PA, advises seniors or their loved ones to ensure home safety to prevent injuries from slips and falls. There are a number of safety tips and preventative measures seniors can take to safeguard their home.
Seniors who live at home will especially find comfort in safety tips that will allow them get around their home with ease. There are many potential dangers present in the home so it is essential to be aware of these hazards so that proper preparations can be made. One of the most important home safety tips is to install grab bars and handles in the bathrooms. Weak and fragile bones and joints make it difficult for seniors to use the facility. Having something to hold onto while in the shower can prevent a serious injury caused by slips and falls. Bathroom handles will also make it easier for seniors to sit down and get up from the toilet.
Frequent trips to the bathroom are common for seniors, even at bedtime. Keeping walking aids at bedside will help seniors to get out of bed with ease, and remind them to take their walkers with them into the bathroom. These nightly walks also require clear visibility of pathways. Installing multiple night lamps and wall light fixtures will help seniors travel around the house comfortably.
