Kitchen Safety for Seniors

Kitchen Safety for Seniors


The kitchen can best be understood as the heart of the home. It is oftentimes where memories begin and gatherings are fueled. It is utilized many times daily and fulfills some of our most basic needs. But it also poses many hazards—hazards that increase in prevalence with age. Hot surfaces, sharp knives, boiling water, and items just out of reach are accidents in waiting. And seniors, whether through negligence or inability, have a harder time managing them.

Alzheimer's and Home Care - A Good Match?

Alzheimer's and Home Care - a good match?


How do you know when it’s time for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s to transition to a long term care solution? Generally, the best indicator is an inability to adequately perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL). ADLs are routine tasks including meal preparation, bathing, taking medications, paying bills, and many others that require daily achievement to maintain a basic quality of life. The regressive nature of Alzheimer’s Disease will ultimately lead to struggles with ADLs for all who experience it.
