Safety for Seniors & Caregivers
Dr. Marion & MedicalAlert have teamed up to bring you a complimentary guide with helpful tips to increase safety for elders in and around the home.
Many elderly are victims of accidents in their own homes, due to hazards that are easy to overlook, but just as easy to fix. Taking simple, common sense steps to correct these problems can prevent injury, and make your elder’s life easier.
Before evaluating your elder’s home, make sure that you have their permission and cooperation. Involve them in the changes you are making by explaining the reasoning behind them, and being available to answer any questions they may have.
The Home Safety Guide to the right is complimentary and it includes a list of changes that can be made in your elder’s home to improve their safety and quality of life. While there are many suggestions here, keep in mind that there may be other necessary improvements that are unique to your elder.
MedicalAlert is a proud supporter of elder care education and home safety. Their network ensures that emergency responders and hospital staff get your up-to-date medical information, the moment they need it, to make informed decisions about your treatment and care.
