Elderly Safety & Abuse Prevention
There are specific health and safety issues to be aware of for every stage in life. This is no different when it comes to our aging population. There are many unique safety issues to this ever growing group of people and it is important to address them to ensure the wellness of our elderly population.
With the population aging, it's important to know how to keep the elderly safe. More people are keeping older family members in their homes, rather than nursing facilities, so home-safety tips are extremely important. Just as childproofing is important, so is making the home of an elderly person safe.
