Protecting Elderly Indianapolis Parents from Slips & Falls
Protecting Elderly Indianapolis Parents from Slips & Falls

If you’re a family member or caregiver
of an Indianapolis senior citizen with memory loss, Alzheimers, or
other cognitive disorder, I’ve come across a fantastic, online,
illustrated guide that will help you and them to maintain the safety
of the family home. This site can help to minimize the possibility of
falls, trips, and other dangers that exist in the Indiana house of
anyone who is aging.
The resource offers a look at various
rooms where dangers may be lurking, how to minimize them, and ideas
on different ways to safely structure living space.
As an Indianapolis real estate agent, I
see many homes where senior citizens live and must navigate through
or across unsafe circumstances. Sometimes, even the most mundane,
simple problem can morph into a larger one.
For example, elderly adults with depth
perception issues are more prone to falls. Help your loved one by
providing a sharp contrast between things that may be confused like
the bed and the floor. A distinctly colored or patterned bedspread
placed on the bed will allow a senior citizen to more easily
distinguish between the two.
If your loved one will soon be leaving
the family home for a smaller space or assisted living, I’ll be happy
– as an Indianapolis realtor – to help your family navigate the
twists and turns of selling a home.
In the interim, survey the website
below and gather some ideas to help keep your loved one safe!
