Safety for the aging people in your life is an important factor. Older people need to feel safe in their homes, be safe in their homes and also be safe in the wider community.
Basic home safety includes:
Doors and windows that shut and secure properly
Doors and windows that can be locked
Consider putting a length of dowel in window and door tracks that don’t have locks
Make sure mats are secure to prevent tripping – you can buy ‘non slip mat secure’ at Bunnings etc
Have important phone numbers easy to access, preferably programmed into the phone
A fully stocked first aid kit
Peep hole or locked security screen at the front door
Security screens all around the house
Working outdoor automatic security lights
Non skid mats at outside doors and in the bathrooms
Nothing left around that could cause a fall
