Home Safety Tip Links:
Suggestions for making the home safe and ‘dementia friendly’ can come from a variety of sources. Review lists and choose what works best in your situation.
Ask your doctor to recommend that an occupational therapist come into your home to suggest changes to make your home safer for your loved one and yourself. If necessary, have the therapist send notice to building managers or landlords listing suggested changes, such as grab bars in the tub/shower, or ramp on entryway.
In addition, both Canadian and US website offer suggestions. Links to their pages are shown just below. Browse to find what matches your caregiving needs.
There are many more suggestion lists provided by commercial groups online, and you can find by searching ” safe home dementia.”
