Home Safety Checklist
Each year, thousands of older Americans fall at home. Many of them are seriously injured and some are disabled. Falls are often due to hazards that are easy to overlook but many times, easy to fix. Interim HealthCare has developed a checklist that can be used to help you find and fix hazards in your home.
Starting the Conversation
Meeting the needs of a loved one who is sick or injured is a lot of responsibility to put on one person. In fact, caregivers who try to do it all by themselves are more likely to suffer from caregiver stress and depression.
Senior Home Care Education - The Savvy Senior also offers a nationally syndicated question-and-answer column devoted to meeting the needs of today's senior citizens and the families who support them. Each week Savvy Senior provides practical information and resources on a wide variety of topics relevant to senior living in the 21st century.
