Mom always put the black stew                                 for your
pot under the stove to keep the
children from breaking it.                                  real estate
Perhaps now it belongs on a shelf                           advertising
beside the stove. And who says
the eggs must go in the egg tray
of the refrigerator? Perhaps it’s
easier for Dad to handle them if
they’re stored in the meat tray. If
that hallway table, always a per-
manent fixture, is becoming a
dangerous obstacle, move it.
   ◆ Look behind closed doors.
Many seniors will close off parts
of a house they no longer use. Be
sure to check those areas regular-
ly for mold or water damage.
Don’t close vents to crawl spaces.
   ◆ Talk to your parents about
why and how they do things,
then look for ways to simplify
their lives. If your mom’s
immaculate floors are now regu-
larly dirty, think about how she’s
been doing that job all these
years and offer options. Rather
than a heavy mop and bucket,
check out lightweight, all-in-one
mops. Look for smooth-top stoves
and refrigerators with water and
ice on the outside. Change door-
knobs to levers, or purchase grips
that can go on conventional
knobs. Convert single-bulb light
fixtures to multiple bulbs, so
seniors still have light when one
bulb burns out.
   ◆ Consider security. Think
about potential dangers lurking
within your loved one’s home.
Lock-in switches on thermostats
and stoves will keep seniors with
dementia and Alzheimer’s dis-
ease from harming themselves.
Help them manage in their envi-
ronment by installing a cordless
intercom.
