As you may know, most older adults want to age-in-place and maintain independence. To plan for this, they need to prepare their homes for aging and to be careful about home safety tips.
With a growing number of older adults living independently, it’s increasingly important to make sure that they’re safe at home. If you’re an older adult living on your own, or care for an older person living alone, here’s what you need to know about home safety.
