Expert Senior Safety Tips Provided In Santa Monica

The weather is cooling, the leaves are falling, and many elders in LA and OC are beginning to hide themselves indoors until the weather warms up again. But with the senior care agency that's trusted most in Southern California being located right here in Santa Monica, elders of all ages and health situations can continue to enjoy the great outdoors without putting an unnecessary risk on their health going forward.
That’s because at A-1 Home Care, our caregiving professionals are ready and waiting to serve elders from all walks of life, including Jewish, Middle Eastern, Asian, and European, with a pair of golden hands and an honest heart.

Take a look below at 3 of the simplest holiday season safety tips that elders can incorporate into their daily life for greater home health moving forward:
1.      Prepare Against Power Shortages
Know where your flashlights and warm clothes are located in the home if a storm causes the power to go out. Also, remember to have non-perishable foods around in case a longer power outage occurs-- which can cause your perishable foods to go bad in a hurry!
2.      Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Even some of the most festive heating devices in your home—like setting a fire in the fireplace or lighting a lantern-- can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Take heed in improving the safety level in your home by checking the batteries on your carbon monoxide detector and getting fresher ones if the occasion calls for it.
3.      Remember To Dress Warm
As obvious as this one may seem, there are actually many elders who neglect to prioritize dressing for warmth during the cooler months—and end up learning the hard way that they should have after they catch an unnecessary cold. Try to have the next day’s clothes already set out the night before, and make sure they include warmer clothing materials.
