Safety Modifications

At Impactful Home Care, we understand the importance of maintaining independence and safety for seniors in their own homes.

As we age, our physical needs and abilities may change, and sometimes our living environment can become a challenge.

Safety modifications can significantly reduce the risk of falls and accidents, allowing seniors to live comfortably and confidently for longer.

Why Consider Safety Modifications?

  • Reduced Fall Risk: Falls are a leading cause of injury and hospitalization for older adults. Safety modifications can address potential hazards and create a safer living space.
  • Increased Independence: By making your home safer, you can maintain your independence and continue living comfortably in familiar surroundings.
  • Improved Peace of Mind: Safety modifications offer peace of mind for both seniors and their families, knowing that the home environment is less likely to pose a threat.

Impactful Home Care: Your Partner in Safety

Our compassionate caregivers and experienced team can help you identify potential safety hazards in your home and recommend appropriate modifications. We can also connect you with reliable professionals to implement these changes.

Common Safety Modifications

Bathroom Safety

  • Install grab bars around the shower/bathtub, toilet, and next to the sink for added support.
  • Consider a shower chair or bath bench for easier bathing.
  • Replace slippery surfaces with non-slip mats or treads.

Improved Lighting

  • Increase lighting throughout the home, especially in stairwells, hallways, and bathrooms.
  • Install nightlights in frequently used areas to avoid nighttime stumbles.

Floor Safety

  • Remove loose rugs or secure them with double-sided tape to prevent tripping.
  • Repair uneven flooring or thresholds that could cause falls.
  • Consider installing low-pile carpeting or non-slip flooring for better traction.

Accessibility Features

  • Install handrails along stairwells and hallways for added support.
  • Raise the height of toilets seats for easier standing and sitting.
  • Consider installing lever door handles instead of knobs for easier opening.

For additional support, consider partnering with our Philadelphia home care agency.
