June is Safety Month – Consider Simple Safety & Security Tips for Aging in Place

Aging in Place is a term used when a senior adult has decided to remain in their home.  Sometimes the home has been adapted to allow them to do this.  Other times it is not.

If you have an elderly parent or other family member or even a friend, it is important to thing about these simple things suggested by American Society on Aging:

1. Keep a printed list of emergency and family phone numbers in large font, inserted in a clear plastic sleeve close to the telephone, in the bedroom and-or kitchen.

2. Place lamps and a cordless phone within easy reach of the bed or often-used chair.

Don’t wait until an accident happens that might injure or permanently change the quality of life of the elderly adult.  Make them as safe as possible.
