Senior Safety ~ Fall Prevention and Monitoring

Posted by Cedars on April 13, 2016

Senior Safety!

Senior safety is of great importance. Fall¬† prevention is critical to Senior Safety. Patient’s suffering from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or any form of dementia are often unaware of their own symptoms, and caregivers must take special precautions to keep them safe.

Look at Senior Monitors;

  • Bed
  • Chair
  • mat alarms

Wandering devices;

  • Both inside and outside are necessary
  • Murals
  • Fire rated door murals
  • Emergency information wristbands
  • Using simple stop signs

As a caregiver of someone with dementia, you may find them to all of the sudden be irritable with no apparent reason, BUT there is a reason. They may have fallen and broke a bone and are unable to communicate this to you.

You can find many home items at the Alzheimer’s store.com
