Your home is the one place where you should feel safe, so if you’re living with mobility problems you must ensure that you safeguarded your property. Luckily, there are lots of simple ways to improve the safety levels of your home and minimise the risk of accidents.
In this blog, we explain some of these solutions and how you can implement them in your home.
If you’re unsteady on your feet and need extra support moving between the upstairs and downstairs of your home, stairlifts can help. The stairs are one of the most dangerous areas of the home and if you struggle with balance or joint pain your chances of having an accident while using them increases. Stairlifts are easy to operate with a comfortable chair and secure strap that will keep you fastened until you reach your stop.
Your current flooring may be a tripping or slipping hazard if it doesn’t provide enough grip. Safety flooring is designed using non-slip materials which minimise the risk of injuries. If you have previously had an accident caused by your flooring it’s a good idea to upgrade it to something safer especially if you live independently.
Being able to use the bathroom without assistance is very important to many people with mobility-related conditions.
