Aging Signs To Watch For #5

#5:  Is your parents home safe?

Take a look around your parents’ home, keeping an eye out for any red flags. Are the stairways narrow or steep…are stair-rails attached? Are walkways and stairs clear of ‘trip-over-articles…loose rugs? Is there adequate lighting both inside and outside the home? Can your parents SEE the directions on medication containers? Do they need glasses…do they know where their glasses are? Another sign to look for…scorched pots in the kitchen…could indicate your parents are forgetting about food cooking on the stove.
