Home Health Care Services Providers Discuss Senior Safety & Preparedness In Lincoln, RI
At Comfort Keepers, our home health care services include education on safety and preparedness for you and your loved ones
At Comfort Keepers of Lincoln, RI, we take your loved ones' safety just as seriously as we do that of our own loved ones. We believe that when it comes to providing your loved ones with the home health care services they need, we are among the best in the nation. However, even though your loved ones have one of our "Comfort Keepers" in their home to help and you are coming in to check on them, there are still several risks we feel you need to be aware of. We also think you should know what to do should something happen to your loved one.
The majority of seniors would much rather continue to live independently than in an assisted living facility. Thanks to home health care services such as Comfort Keepers, this is possible more now than at any time in history. With your help and that of our amazing caregivers, your loved ones will have the care and assistance they need. But as with even the best of plans, there are gaps in coverage. At some point, your loved ones will be alone. This is typically when things like accidents, falls, heart attacks, strokes, etc. tend to happen.
This only one half of the equation, the other half is the house your loved ones live in. An unsafe home can lead to accidents and illnesses. Things like piles of books, magazines, and so forth present tripping hazards. Clogged gutters can lead to water backing up against the foundation and leaking into the basement. Smoke and CO detectors that are not working can lead to; well let's not go there.
We Show You How
Our caregivers know what to look for and can show you the problems they see and help you to see what has to be done. Whether it is as simple as a dirty HVAC filter that needs to be changed or a broken furnace that needs professional repair. These are only some of the things we can help you with to ensure your loved ones continue to live safely in their own homes.
