Senior Safety

The population of Senior citizens are increasing by the day. However, as many people reach this stage of their lives, their mental abilities can decline, making life at home much more dangerous and likely to result in injuries or other unpleasant occurrences.

This is a problem for those who live with or have seniors at home alone. There are many preventive measures that can be introduced to help keep seniors safe and secure. Some of the options are listed below:

 

Shower seats and rails

Shower seats and shower rails enables taking a shower or bath without falling, making the process much easier and safer for a senior. Non-slip mats can also help to maintain balance when placed in front of the bathtub.


Tracking devices

Tracking devices like GPS watches can quickly locate a senior who may have left the premises and gone somewhere for some reason.  This gives their family members a sense of assurance regarding the whereabouts of their loved ones.


Alarm systems
