Interior Check Points

Keep safety in mind, when planning the care of your parent.

Check:

Heating and air conditioning (the majority of elderly are cold, due to poor circulation)
Extension cords -- keep them out of the way!
Doorways
Children's toys - move them out of the way so they do not invite falls!
