Staying Home as You Age

Posted On 07/26/2016
Q:

My wife and I would like to stay in our homes as we age. Do you have suggestions of simple tasks we can do ourselves to accomplish this goal?

A:

Certainly! Start small now and it can make a lot of difference in your day to day quality of life.

  1. Plug in night lights to prevent future falls
  2. Move frequently used items to more accessible areas (i.e. a lower shelf)
  3. Replace doorknobs with door handles for easier access
  4. Purchase a nonslip shower seat and handheld showerhead
  5. Get a Lifeline unit for help in an emergency 24/7
  6. Keep pathways open and free of clutter to prevent trips and falls
  7. Call 765.464.8080 for a Home Safety Inspection to set yourself up for success in retiring at home.
