Natalie Tate Bathroom Safety

Welcome to home care this week. Seniors who are slowing down and need assistance really want to maintain their independence and stay at home. However, there are many who find themselves in a situation where they need to be put into a nursing home. Many think that this is a result of a certain disease or other condition that is preventing the senior from being independent. But the number one reason for a senior needing to go to a nursing home is falls. If they can be prevented then a large majority of seniors can avoid going to nursing homes. I sat down and talked with one of our case managers about preventing falls and home safety. And because most falls occur in bathrooms, that is the best place to start for home safety.
