You might be an adult child of an elderly parent who lives far away, and you worry about your mom or dad. What can you do from a thousand miles away?
If you're not using a home care agency to provide in-home care for your loved one, the next best thing is educating your parent about home safety and how it can prevent them from a senior's worst nightmare, a serious fall. Read our Senior Safety pages to learn how you and your loved one can enjoy peace of mind knowing their home is safe, and their independence is not in jeopardy.
Fall prevention begins with a free home assessment
Before being able to educate your loved one about keeping a safe home, you should consider a free home safety assessment from SYNERGY HomeCare to learn what is needed to keep them safe. We visit your loved one's or parent's home and use a 13 point checklist to evaluate the safety level in their home. Once the assessment is complete, which includes evaluating your parent for their ability to remain safe in their home, based upon their physical and mental cognition, we make recommendations for safety adjustments. We teach you about safety products that will help immensely with safety.
We pay close attention to bathroom safety, which is where most falls occur, to minimize and hopefully eliminate falls. Learn more here.
Kitchens are evaluated for safety based upon your loved one's habits and their ability to reach often-used items easily. Learn about it here.
Additionally, medications are reviewed to understand their dosing cycles, and we offer ways to ensure they take their medications on time.
Home safety is the key to seniors' independence and health. Help your loved one be safe and healthy with a free, no-obligation home assessment.
