There are many simple steps that caregivers can take to help their elderly parents with aging in place needs.
Some of the aging in places tips include:
The house was built by my oldest grandson - it's gorgeous, but a single story would be a better idea for aging boomers and seniors, if possible. Or a bathroom with a shower or bath and a bedroom on the first floor.
Grab bars are GRAND!
Rugs that are easy for older eyes to see mean less chance of tripping
TV remotes that are easy for elderly seniors to use may be available by calling your cable or TV company
Lap blankets in different weights can be a big help for seniors whose body temperatures can vary from minute to minute
LOTS OF LOVE - vital at every age, don't you think? :)
