Home Safety Checklist Keeps Seniors Living Well And Independently
Posted Aug 24 2013 7:00pm
Easy Comforts™, a retail provider of value-priced health and personal care products, has released a complimentary fall prevention and home safety checklist for seniors and caregivers. The home safety checklist is a source of helpful information and affordable products that can help aging adults maintain an independent lifestyle and aid in preventing avoidable injuries.
Most seniors want to age gracefully in their own homes, and, with the cost of hospital care at a premium, protecting their health and safety is more important than ever. Each year, one out of every three seniors experiences a fall, with seventy percent of falls happening inside the home. Safety doesn’t happen by accident, so Easy Comforts’ Home Safety Checklist provides products and tips that seniors can use to help them better prepare and arrange their homes to prevent potentially debilitating falls, all while remaining comfortable and independent.
“With 33 percent of the senior population experiencing a slip or fall each year, it is so important that they take steps to safe-guard their environments. Living independently shouldn’t be a luxury –and with so many convenience and safety-enhancing products available, it doesn’t have to be,” said Gena Judkins, brand manager of Easy Comforts™. “But finding the right products and identifying which ones are really needed can be overwhelming. Our Home Safety Checklist eliminates the guess-work by providing a realistic path forward, helping seniors to continue living independently –and safely –for many years to come.”
The Easy Comforts™ Home Safety Checklist is the first of its kind specifically created for seniors and caregivers. It is unique in that it provides information to make safe, independent living a reality and provides the products needed to implement the safety tips. A sneak peek at the ‘Bathroom Safety’ section of the checklist reveals tips such as installing grab bars by the toilet and tub. It also provides the correlating products needed to implement the tip, such as the Hi-Lo Tub Bar and Fold-Easy Toilet Support.
It’s smart to be proactive in preventing falls and other injuries that can occur at home or on the road. The Home Safety Checklist addresses a variety of areas of the home for consideration, including the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, as well as lighting and other factors throughout the entire home. Small changes such as simply removing clutter or adding lighting in key areas can increase safety and security.
