Find Out More About Fall Safety And How It Affects Senior Care Within Clinton Township, MI And The Surrounding Area
No matter what you enjoy about the changing seasons, the chilly weather, the colorful leaves, the upcoming holidays, it’s important to always be safe. Senior care, like the fruits and veggies you eat, should change with the seasons. How you care for yourself or your loved one during the summer can be incredibly different than during the winter, especially when the snow starts falling.

With this in mind, Comfort Keepers® Home Care has created a shortlist of ways you can start prepping for fall:
- Clean the leaves: While it is true that the colorful leaves that come with the change of the season are beautiful, they are also a potential safety hazard. Leaves can be slippery while wet and piles of leaves can obscure potentially dangerous obstacles, making ensuring that you or your loved one have clean gutters and walkways is a crucial part of autumn senior care and safety.
- Prepare for ice and snow: If you live in a colder area be sure that ice for walkways, car brushes, and shovels are easily accessible.
- Be aware of your back: When raking leaves or shoveling snow, be sure not to overdo it! Stretch before you begin working and take breaks to avoid getting overtired.
- Test and replace alarm batteries: This is more than just a senior safety tip, as everyone, young or old, should test and replace smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries every 6 months. Many people use Daylight Savings Time as a reminder.
