Turn Your Home into an Elderly-friendly Place

Here is a room-by-room guide on turning your home into a safe and comfortable place for your elderly loved one:
  • Modify the bathroom — use non-skid mats, install grab bars in the shower or bathtub, and unplug electrical appliances when not in use.
  • Evaluate the kitchen — keep flammable materials away from the range, and equip the kitchen with step tools and handrails.
  • Check the bedroom — place a telephone lamp within reach from the bed, and remove tripping hazards from the floor.
