Keep Older Adults Safe and Independent

Keep Older Adults Safe and Independent

Seniors that can stay in their homes live longer and happier lives. They’re surrounded by their friends, old memories, and are usually close to family. However, even independent seniors could use a little bit of help around the house to keep it safe. Here are a few ways you can keep your loved one safe and independent.

1. Place Handles in Seating Areas

Getting up and down can be a problem for your loved one. They may not have the strength needed to push up on a sofa or lounge chair. Luckily, there are a few ways that you can make that easier for them. There are plenty of senior handles and grips that can be placed on chairs or against walls.

These handles allow seniors to pull themselves up and safely lower themselves down on their chairs. They can relax without worrying about needing help to do so.

2. Use TubcuT to Convert Their Bathtub

It’s unlikely that your seniors use their bathtub anymore. It just isn’t safe for them. You may have thought about ripping it out and installing a shower instead. The price may have stopped you.

An affordable option is to use TubcuT. You can convert bathtub to shower with ease. Their experienced professionals will come to your loved one’s home and cut their tub. There’s still enough of a wall to keep the water from spilling over it. However, the cut is large and deep enough to allow your loved one to easily step in and out of the shower.

The cut is also sanded and smoothed to make it look as though the tub was always meant to be a shower. You can even keep the cut part of the tub to convert it back into a bathtub when you want.

TubcuT is a unique and affordable solution that makes bathing much safer for your senior.

3. Smart Technology

If you always want to be present with your loved one but can’t make the drive every day, then you may want to invest in smart technology like security systems. It enables you to keep an eye on your loved ones while they go about their day. You can also help them run the house by hooking up other elements like a smart oven, a smart thermometer, and a smart doorbell.
