Checklist to Ensure Safety for Seniors at Home


Seniors are the group of people who need home care. Home care services in Waterford, Connecticut, are readily available for seniors seeking assistance at home. However, not all homes are ready for home care. 

All homes may not be ready for home care. Examples may include a lack of necessary equipment, knowledge, and more. As a trusted provider of non-medical home care services in New London County, Connecticut, we also help clients ensure that the home of their senior loved ones is ready for home care. 

Read and learn more about our checklist below:

  • Is the home free from hazards?
    The home is full of hazards. Hazards pose an increased risk of accidents and fall for seniors. If no adjustments can be made at home, mobility assistance may help to ensure safe navigation. You can learn more tips on preventing falls at home with us.
  • Is the home ready for daily living?
    There are daily activities that need assistance which include bathing. Personal care cannot be achieved when the home lacks the necessary equipment and materials for home care. The same goes for the kitchen, bedroom, and living room. One must prepare the essential items for daily living. 
  • Is your loved one ready for home care?
    Always be in touch with your senior loved one. There are instances when they need limitations or do not need home care. Always ensure that both of you are on the same page. 

If all items are checked, the home and your loved one are ready for our home care services and companionship in Connecticut. Call us at Wilou Healthcare Services if you want to avail of our services.
