Staying Safe in Your Home
Alert1 helps seniors and those with mobility issues maintain
their independence. After all, nothing is more trying than having to uproot
your life in your golden years. Our primary interest is to help you age in
place in the home you love. A medical alert system can offer peace of mind to you
and your loved ones. With your medical alert button, help is just a button
press away. For more details on our service, call 1-866-581-4540.
Additionally, there are other important measures to make as
you age in place. You’re well aware of the problem areas such as the kitchen
and bathroom. In this article we recommend actions to improve the
senior-friendliness of your home. These are Alert1’s simple steps to reduce your
chances of falls or other incidents.
As you progress in life, you’re prone to overlook day to day
actions. This can be especially threatening in the kitchen with open flames,
leaking pipes or sharp objects. You may consider installing a smart cooking range
that switches off when left unattended. The smart cooking range will also alert
your loved ones of a potential incident. You can read other recommendations on modern
kitchen appliances here.
How can you better keep kitchen surfaces and floors dry? You never know when your next spill could happen. A great way to detect broken plumbing or
dampness is to install leak sensors near appliances and pipes carrying water. Also
slip resistant mats are a must have for areas that collect water or oils. These
kitchen safety solutions will keep you out of the frying pan and away from the

As we age, the bathroom becomes a difficult area to
navigate. Many of you have concerns about bathing as most falls occur when leaving
the shower. Installing a grab bar in the shower can steady your balance
and reduce the likelihood of falls. Grab bars are an affordable option to
install in your personal shower. An alternative option to the standup shower is
a walk-in bath tub.
To keep both your privacy and safety while using the bathroom,
you should consider these new technologies. As many incidents happen in the
bathroom, precautionary measures can save you from a world of trouble. The cutting-edge
bathroom technologies of today are upping the creature comforts of the standard
commode. These bathroom recommendations go hand in hand with personal alert
buttons, as all our tech is showerproof.
