When you have an Elderly or Senior loved one who lives alone, it’s important to do all you can to help keep them safe, especially when you aren’t around to visit as often as you’d like because of work, caring for your own family, or other obligations. This article from a home care agency in Canada titled Home Safety Tips for Seniors talks about the basic precautions that every family should take to ensure the safety of their Elderly loved ones. The article talks about ways you can safeguard each room and bathroom in the house. Also, being secure from outside threats can be accomplished by installing a peephole in the front door to ensure that your loved one can see anyone that comes knocking. Deadbolt locks should be installed on all doors and it’s important to get to know the neighbors, who can call you if something doesn’t seem right.
