At Companions for Seniors, our mission is to help Chicagoland’s elderly maintain a higher quality of life from the comfort and safety of their own homes. One of the great advantages of aging in place is the freedom, flexibility, and safety it offers to seniors. But to make a loved one’s stay at home as comfortable and accessible as possible, it may be necessary to make a few swaps around the space — and that includes the furniture!
Making sure that seniors live in a safe and accommodating environment can help reduce the risk of falls, and make aging in place feel even more fulfilling. Here are some of our room-by-room guides to making home a safer place for seniors:
