Tips for Independent Living and Home Safety

 

Organize and Simplify - Keep similar items together (a basket for all TV remotes).  Return items to their original place.  Eliminate clutter!

 

Technology - Use talking watches, calculators, telephones, computers, etc.

 

Label for Identification -  Use boldface and large print lettering, Braille labels, safety pins, rubber bands, raised stick-on dots, electronic labels, etc.

 

Remove Tripping Hazards - Remove throw rugs, low tables, footstools, cords, etc.

 

Countertop Appliances - Use electric kitchen appliances like toaster ovens, crock-pots, microwaves, and George Foreman-style grills instead of the oven and burners.

 

Emergency Planning - Be able to dial 911 independently.  Clearly identify exits and know how to get out of your home.
