It’s important to know which places in your house may be dangerous for you or your loved one. Consider the following risk areas as you make your home more senior-friendly:
Bathrooms: Some bathrooms have tubs that are too high or showers with a sill that are not comfortable or safe to step over.
Kitchens: Tiles can become worn-down or slippery over time making them unsafe to walk on. Older stovetops, ovens and other outdated appliances might not be safe
Stairways: Steep staircases can be both tiring and challenging for older adults as well as creating a high risk of falls.
Area Rugs and Floor Mats: Loose coverings can be a tripping hazard and mats without a non-slip backing increase the risk of serious fall-related injury
