Making home safe for an elderly loved one

Caregiving is an often daunting, yet rewarding, experience. When an older loved one moves in, there are challenges that come along with them joining the household. Schedules shift, responsibilities change and previously unforeseen considerations arise.

At PA Health & Wellness, our members have shared their experiences and the quick fixes they implemented that have helped to remove unnecessary stress.

Below are a few of the best tips:

• Leave a light on in the bathroom at night to prevent slips, trips and falls.
• Get a shower chair and non-slip strips for the bathtub.
• Add a railing to stairs and to hallways.
