News & Updates

 

February is Senior Independence Month

For most seniors, continuing to live at home is a key part of independence. That’s why it’s crucial to equip your loved ones' homes so that they are safe and able to perform tasks on their own. Install grab bars and non-slip mats, organize the living area so that items are accessible, and maintain a well-lit environment to help prevent falls. Be sure your loved ones have access to a working telephone and easily accessible emergency numbers.
