Each season presents its own challenges, yet there are a few precautions that apply in general.
Use Ramps and mobility aides, if appropriate. Keep all exterior areas well lit with Motion-Sensor Lighting.
Install railings on both sides of stairs.
Use safety strips at the edge of each step.
Snow and ice removal is essential, yet this is not a job for seniors. Get help with this!
As temperatures drop, wet surfaces become slippery. Use caution while outside!
Spring brings mud, and seeds dropped from trees, warranting extra caution.
Autumn leaves are pretty, but dangerous. Be careful when walking amongst fallen leaves.
