  3. Make Staying Home Safer with the Home Safety Checklist

senior-safety-checklist.jpgThe worldwide pandemic may have given older adults and their families a new appreciation for the safety of home. The truth is, home may come with its own set of safety challenges.

As your parents age, you may begin looking at the home of your youth through different eyes. Your mom’s favorite throw rug? She tripped over it last week and nearly fell. That deep bathtub you used to love to soak in? Dad can’t get into it anymore. And you’ve begun to worry that your mom’s forgetfulness will put her at risk in the kitchen as she continues to prepare family favorites for holiday gatherings.

The home safety checklist, from Home Instead Senior Care®, explores nine areas of the home with an eye toward senior safety. The checklist can assist you in assessing bedroom, bathroom, living room, hallway, kitchen, laundry room/basement, garage and front yard. To help ensure your loved ones’ safety at home, download the checklist below to begin:
