No one likes getting older. Old age can bring with it a lot of infirmity and added concerns. If you need to take care of an aging parent in your home, there are many things that you should consider to make sure that their stay in your home is as comfortable and safe as possible.

It is important to have a good understanding of any physical and mental ailments that an elderly person has so as to be able to predict any issues that can arise.

For example, if they have poor eyesight, ample lighting is very important, especially in areas that are fall risks, such as stairs. You should also make sure that your floors are uncluttered to minimize the risk of them tripping over something.

Falls in tubs are very common among older people, so it would be wise to install an anti-slip surface in your tub, maybe even replacing your tub with a walk-in shower.
