How To Create A Safe Home For Someone With Alzheimer’s

March 29, 2018

Caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s are responsible for their patients’ safety. Because of memory issues and personality shifts, this can be quite a challenge. One way to insure their safety is to reduce the likelihood of accidents and illness at home. An air filter is a great way to keep the individual’s air pure and decrease the risk of asthma related symptoms. Also, look out for safety hazards in the kitchen by replacing door handles that stick out and old appliances that do not come equipped with an auto shut-off feature. Finally, be prepared for emergencies by having a list of first responder phone numbers in each room, as well as the poison control line. Any steps that can be taken to improve safety in the home of someone with Alzheimers will improve their quality of life and independence.

Key Takeaways:

  • EPA data notes that air that is inside the home can actually be up to 100 more toxic than the free-flowing air outside.
  • Research also pointed out that seniors afforded the benefit of breathing filtered air showed significant vascular improvement.
  • It stands to reason then that filters for those over 65 is a good idea, as the age group as a whole is far more prone to lung and heart isdues.

“In other words, it can be very beneficial to make sure that the air is clean by placing an air filter in the home.”
