As we approach September, a month dedicated to fall prevention awareness, the spotlight is shining on the critical topic of senior home modifications. Recently, TruBlue of Birmingham Owners and Certified Senior Home Safety Specialists Rick Matson and Mur Feldman had the privilege of joining WBRC Fox News to delve into the significance of making home adjustments for aging seniors. These modifications enable them to continue living comfortably and securely in their homes for as long as possible.
Empowering Seniors to Age in Place
The desire to age gracefully at home is universal. Seniors, like all of us, hold a deep emotional connection to their homes. It's a space filled with memories, warmth, and familiarity. But as time goes on, the physical challenges associated with aging can create safety concerns. Falls, in particular, pose a significant threat to seniors' well-being. With nearly 25% of seniors experiencing falls each year, it's a reality that demands attention.
Safety Assessment: A Gateway to Prevention
Rick and Mur, experts from TruBlue, shared valuable insights during their appearance on WBRC Fox News. They highlighted the essence of fall prevention month, emphasizing the importance of staying proactive in keeping seniors safe at home. One of their key offerings is a free safety assessment. This assessment, performed by their team of professionals, is a comprehensive evaluation of a home's potential safety risks. By identifying areas of concern, they empower seniors and their families to take the necessary precautions to minimize fall risks.
Small Changes, Big Impact
Mur articulated how even the smallest adjustments can have a profound impact on senior safety. From strategically placing grab bars to removing tripping hazards like throw rugs, these simple measures can significantly enhance the security of seniors as they move about their homes.
An aspect Mur passionately discussed was TruBlue's innovative solution for bathtub modifications. Instead of the costly option of completely replacing a bathtub with a walk-in shower, TruBlue offers an economically feasible alternative: the Clean Cut Bath insert. This ingenious solution transforms a standard bathtub into a walk-in tub, providing seniors with ease of access and safety without breaking the bank.
