Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

September 2018
Is your 'Fall' plan in place?   
The fall season is right around the corner. In fact, pumpkin flavored everything is already rolling out in all of the local stores and restaurants. Fall officially starts this weekend, so it's wise to begin looking at a safety plan for your elderly parents and other relatives. After all, being proactive is one of the best ways to avoid unnecessary issues.

As summer transitions into autumn, there will be many more trip hazards and slick surfaces than usual.  Be cautious of leaves and slick rainy surfaces.  Puddles and other wet surfaces can be hazardous for people of all ages, but its especially important to help the elderly avoid them.  

One thing to consider is to have a safety assessment done by Home Healthsmith.  We can help you determine where the fall risks are in the home and help you prepare the home for the upcoming winter season.  

We are here to help!

Stay Safe in the Home Presentation

September 19th presentation at The Center for Adaptive Living at High Point to over 40 attendees from the Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice Rehab Department on how their clients can stay safe in their home.  Attendees then got to play in their 'playground' as one PT called it.  They were able to touch, try, demo & spend as much time as they wanted trying out all new kinds of accessibility equipment.  

 Some of these were the new UStep 2 Walker, Triumph Walker, Cardis New Hi-Lo Vertical Lift Adjustable Foundation bed, Stander's new Signature Line of products and too many more to mention!

Why we do what we do...
"Dear Linda and crew,

Once again you and your crew exceed my expectations. This would be the 3rd time I have needed adjustments made to assist my 91 year old mother.  Grab bars in the shower, aluminum ramp and handles at the front and back door to help mom to balance herself as she steps into the house. Prompt, professional, a few words I use to describe your company to my neighbors, clients & friends. I can't say enough about the staff. Clint and I discussed mom's issues each time they arise and his suggestions were very helpful. These  changes allow me to keep her at home. I am sure I will be contacting you again as difficulties present themselves. 

Thank you so much for making our home function safely for mom and my peace of mind! Please express our gratitude to your exceptional employees."
