Are you caring for a loved one who is living with Dementia? If you are, we assume you have received guidance on the various ways in which you might assist them in maintaining their independence. While you explore opportunities to include them in a variety of everyday duties, the challenge rests on determining how to ensure their safety. That’s where our senior services come in!
Here at Demand Home Care LLC, we proudly deliver high-quality in home care services in Michigan. To supplement our services, we also go to considerable lengths in making relevant tips and tidbits accessible to everyone.
To lend you a hand, here are tips on how you can adapt your home to ensure the safety and protection of your loved ones with Dementia:
- If you have stairs, make sure there is at least one handrail. Put carpet or safety grip strips on stairs, or mark the edges of steps with brightly colored tape so they are more visible.
- Insert safety plugs into unused electrical outlets and consider safety latches on cabinet doors.
- Clear away unused items and remove small rugs, electrical cords, and other items the person may trip over.
- Remove or lock up cleaning and household products, such as paint thinner and matches.
If you ever require an additional layer of support, our caregivers are right at your service!
