Safe, Sound and Solo How to Update Your Home to Live on Your Own Troy C. Van Pelt, D.D.S. Family Dentistry Providing gentle care to people of all ages According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans over age 65 is expected to double, reaching 72 million by 2030. And when it comes to their homes, the National Association of Home Builders reports that this generation is no longer downsizing or moving in with family. Instead, most are choosing to live on their own - updating heir current homes or purchasing homes with amenities to meet their changing needs. As this generation of baby boomers reaches their golden years, creating a safe home environment becomes very important. Although the home is a place of comfort and security, it can also be a dangerous space. Slips, trips, fails and other injuries are more likely as one ages, due to decreased mobility. In fact, those over the age of 70 are the largest group injured by falls in the home each year. So when preparing your home for the golden years, there are many ways to ensure that each room in the house is comfortable and secure, so you can live safe, sound and solo. Traci Rick, R.D.H.

For added security, consider purchasinga bedsidecommode. Bruce H. Lee, D.D.S. Balhroom Family Dentistry According to the Home Safety Council, falls are the leading cause (66 percent) of all nonfatal home injuries. With the water and slick surfaces the bathroom is a frequent location for these falls. Luckily, there are many updates to the bath that can provide older adults with the added security and independence they desire. Studies show that adults over age 60 often have difficulty getting in and out of the shower or bathtub. To combat this issue, the Home Safety Council recommends homeowners install grab bars surrounding the shower or tub area. If additional help is needed beyond grab bars, a transfer bench may be an additional tool to consider.
