Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

September 2017
 
 
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 on September 22, 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 have made many changes to our home that have enabled our mom to stay with us and keep her safe.  We will be showing you these changes on an upcoming Rhode Show segment that will air in October. 

                                                                              Let us help you  with your situation!
