It might be distressing for family members to learn that their loved ones are living alone and have no one to call in an emergency. Everyday items can become risks, and fears of falling are quite real. Senior living safety ensures that your loved one will always have someone to assist them in the event of an emergency.
Keeping a senior safe and independent requires living in an environment that reduces the risk of falling. Narrow doorways, steep staircases and shaky banisters can all contribute to home safety hazards. Maintaining balance and coordination while preventing a fall requires not just knowing and recognizing physical and cognitive limitations, but also remaining active.
Daily mild to moderate physical activity is recommended for those over the age of 60. Simple forms of exercise, such as walking or stretching can help to release stiff joints and muscles, while also boosting the immune system to keep illness at bay.
