I recently helped a senior by removing clutter off the floor as it was a tripping hazard. I then organized all required items within arm’s reach. She was afraid to go into the basement for supplies as the stairs had only one handrail. As you can see in this picture, an additional handrail was installed to aid going up and down the stairs.
We enabled another senior to continue living alone by installing items such as a built-up toilet seat, grab bars, a tub chair, a phone by her bed, and by registering her with Meals on Wheels and Medic Alert.
