Home Safety Topics by Room. Baby Boomers Discover How to Age in Place Longer By Walking Through Your Home and Making These Safety Changes. Prolong Your Health, Prolong Your Life!

Home Safety Topics

take the tour - room by room.

Home safety topics room by room just may be your key to aging in place - your place; home. Whether patient or caregiver, danger lurks for any one, especially the elderly. A vibrant, healthy, get up and go moment can turn into a tragic, debilitating path of decline the next. And it can happen just that quick, changing many lives in an instant. So whether you are looking to implement improved safety to avoid falls and trips or ways to call for help if something should go wrong, you'll be glad you've stopped here!

These home safety topics come from 15+ years of my own experience in patients' homes. Over the years, I've learned why injury occurs or how help could have come sooner. I've also learned that, due to the way home care physical therapists are paid, many don't take the time to take the tour of your home and point out hidden dangers. Sad and life destroying, but true.

Now you don't have to depend on your home care staff, in fact, many boomers would simply like a home safety check. Unfortunately, Medicare does not pay for a home safety check and if you ask for a home care PT to come to your home to point out home safety topics, some agencies will try to impose a reason why they need to come see you over and over again and bill Medicare big bucks.

Because of the fraud and abuse, not to mention scammers on the rise (poising as home care professionals at your door) I've listed these home safety topics by room so you can do your own walk through to determine your needs. You can also add your comments, tips and tricks for others to read and reply to below. This expands our growing community of health and safety conscious individuals and brings more heads together to fight debilitation due to lack of home safety.
