There are various ways to make a home dementia-friendly and keep a senior safe. Install grab bars in the bathroom and handrails near stairs, as seniors with dementia often lose their sense of balance and spatial awareness. Creating a contrast in colors throughout the home can help a senior better identify items and location. For example, use a white plate on a blue table so the senior can differentiate between the two objects. Another way to ensure the safety of a person with dementia is by replacing all of the glassware in their home with plasticware, thus avoiding the possibility of having broken glass around the house. Additional ways to keep a senior safe is to remove items around the house they may trip over, control the noise level in the home, relocate the bedroom to the first floor, install plenty of lighting throughout the home and lower the water temperature settings to avoid burns.
