From birth, we are constantly growing and changing. We have different successes and challenges at each stage and we need to acknowledge that we have to accommodate our environment for those challenges. Most of us want to remain independent and in our own homes. With a few modifications to our homes, we can be safe and comfortable.
Some of these changes are:
- Install grab bars in the shower and tub and near the toilet
- Remove throw rugs to prevent trip hazards
- Keep exterior walk ways clear of obstacles
A Senior Real Estate Specialist can help you with some of these general suggestions. Check also with your family and, if you have one, your home health aide. The most important thing to maintaining your independence is to have a safe home.
