How do I know if my home is safe?

Easy Access for the Elderly

Sometimes a home may need to be modified for safety and access. Be sure to:

Remove rugs, so walkers can move without causing falls.
Get one of the panic buttons that can be worn around the neck or wrist.
Make sure electrical cords are tucked out of the way.
Keep a spare key in case of emergencies.
Let a neighbor know where to reach you, should help be needed.
