Safety-proof your home
Returning home after a procedure or hospitalization can be new territory for everyone involved. You can avoid confusion and stress by having the medication list, care instructions, and contact list for the person you’re caring for easily accessible. These documents will help you feel more prepared and help to keep the person you're caring for safe during their recovery.
Our ability to move around safely at home can change after a new diagnosis or surgery, as we age, or when we’re taking certain medications. As a caregiver, you can help to spot potential tripping hazards or identify ways to make using the bathroom safer and easier for the person you’re caring for.
