Home, sweet home.
Haven’t we all uttered this phrase at least once in our lives? However, are our homes really safe when it comes to protecting the aging population? Apart from providing shelter and comfort, a home can turn out to be a risky place for seniors if a number of safety measures are not taken.
Seniors, or today’s Baby-Boomer generation, are in their mid-sixties (and above) with this number on the rise. At this age their physical strength begins to weaken and managing most of their daily activities such as getting around the house or taking a shower become a labor.
Additionally, they may have developed a chronic illness or suffer from a reduced field of vision, making it all the more difficult for them to live life safely in the comforts of their own home. For example, when entering/exiting the shower they may slip where grab bars have yet to be installed OR trip over a loose tile and fall which can lead to serious injury and in the worst case, death.
Other existing hazards such as poor lighting conditions and the absence of staircase railings can lead to a potentially dangerous fall for the aging population in their homes.
This is a matter of concern for seniors, their family, and caregivers. Gaining knowledge to modify the home for these hazards is the best option available for seniors and their loved ones in order to lead a safe and comfortable life in their homes.
For this reason, you can attend a special two-day program lead by George Bentley of Bentley Baths.
You can discuss your concerns with him regarding common safety issues experienced first-hand or by someone you know, but most importantly you will learn life-saving tips. Take hold of this opportunity and learn how to keep you or your loved ones healthy, happy, and independent in their own homes.
Join George at Sun City in the Lobby for a Meet and Greet on the September 28th, 2015 from 8:30am to 11:30am and get a general briefing for his following seminar, Thrive Now, conducted on September 29th, 2015 from 11:00am to 12:00pm in Ballroom A.
There are limited seats, so don’t forget to register early to be a part of the program, and remember to save the date.
See you there!
