Home is Where the Heart Is
Staying in their own homes for as long as possible is a priority for many seniors, yet the house might not always be secure. This is especially true for individuals with balance or coordination issues and poor eyesight.
With deep compassion, we are devoted to helping elderly individuals in Tucson Area, stay in the comfort of their beloved homes for as long as possible. Accordingly, we offer home safety evaluations to help forestall falls among elderly people and provide peace of mind for them and their families. Like a lighthouse, Guiding Light Senior Care helps seniors stay safe and secure in their own homes for as long as possible.
What Are Home Safety Evaluations?
Home safety evaluations are assessments that evaluate the home environment of a senior to determine if it is suitable for them and safe.
Regardless of whether your elderly loved one is wishing to remain at home as long as possible or if he’s ready to move into Senior Care, Guiding Light stands ready to provide guidance and support along the way.
This can involve recommendations such as:
- Installing handrails in bathrooms
- Providing nonslip mats in showers
- Making changes to make it easier to move from room to room (e.g., furniture placement, lighting)
- Recommending senior care services (e.g., home health aides or other senior care professionals)
Who Benefits From a Home Safety Evaluation?
To identify the risk of injury at home, it is essential to assess a patient’s physical and cognitive state, their physical functioning ability, as well as available social support. If any losses are found within the four fundamental aspects outlined below – they may be exposed to the risks associated with an unhealthy “patient & environment mismatch”.
It is essential to have an emergency plan in place. Guiding Light Senior Care can develop and review a tailored plan that addresses the individual’s needs and preferences on how they want to be cared for in the case of an emergency. This may include action steps, contact information, instructions on preferred care providers, and details about the medication.
