Senior home safety checks available in June

-A A +A

Nearly half of senior home accidents are preventable, according to an emergency room doctor survey.
Home Instead Senior Care of Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Española offers free home safety checks and easy fixes to reduce accidents to help ensure safety of seniors.
Nearly 20 million seniors visit the emergency room each year with almost a third of the visits related to injuries, many of which are sustained in the place seniors are meant to feel the safest: their home.
In fact, 65 percent of senior homes have at least one potential safety issue, according to adult children of seniors surveyed by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network.
These preventable home hazards, such as throw rugs or loose railings, can be particularly harmful, leading to falls and injuries that can impact seniors’ ability to live independently.
However, the majority of seniors (85 percent) haven’t taken any steps to prepare their homes for their changing needs as they grow older. 
“The home should be the safest and most comfortable place for aging seniors,” said Chico Marquez of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Española.
