One of the best things you can do to help care for your loved one battling dementia is help them stay in their home. 9 out of 10 people prefer living in their home and you’ll improve their standard of life by keeping them there.
But, there are plenty of hazards in the home. Various tripping hazards, security problems, and a lack of supervision can complicate things.
Many people think you need to do a full home renovation to make it safer for your loved ones to live at home, but you don’t have to.

to make the home safer, more secure, and more comfortable so they can avoid the nursing home.
