Just as you would child-proof a home to make it safe for a child from injury, Angels will “elder-proof” your home to protect against injury or accidental poison. We get check-ups for our bodies (blood pressure, cholesterol), and for our cars, but we forget to do the same for our homes. When motor skills, balance, and response speeds change, we need to adjust our living environment. Accidents are most likely to occur in the homes of elders. Many accidents can be prevented with a little forethought.
We make a thorough review of all aspects of your living environment – floors, bathrooms, kitchen, alarms, furniture placement, doorways, storage areas. You will feel better and safer about living independently after you get a written report of our safety suggestions. Angels can often handle the corrections that need to be made, or we can arrange for changes to be made. Widening doorways for wheelchairs, installing grab bars/smoke detectors, non-slip floor coatings, and so on.
