Your elderly loved one needs a safe environment in his/her daily living. Home modifications or fixtures can help seniors to move about independently and comfortably, and be able to resume their normal activities as much as possible.
Removing potential hazards prevents accidents from happening and reduces risks of falling. An occupational therapist can help to assess your home, identify potential safety hazards, and recommend improvements to the living environment.
There are also social service agencies and private organisations that provide home modification services. Use our E-Care Locator to get a list of these organisations.
Changes could range from simple adjustments to your home or lifestyle, to more complicated modifications like the addition of fittings or structural changes to your home.
You can find a
home safety checklist by Changi General Hospital here.
HDB’s Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE) helps to make your home more elder-friendly.
