Making the Kitchen Safe and Friendly for Seniors

Making the Kitchen Safe and Friendly for Seniors

The aroma and warmth of home-cooked meals make the house a place like no other. Our loved ones would prefer to stay at home given this atmosphere. When they choose for home, there is a Healthcare Service Provider in Hawaii who can help make this option work for the better.

The kitchen can be a senior’s favorite place. If they love cooking or preparing food, they will surely want to help out despite their condition. However, even if the kitchen remained the same, the elderly’s living condition has changed – making them vulnerable to accidents. They may also find difficulties working in their state.

With some changes, the kitchen can be made safe and friendly to your senior loved one. Vision is one common problem with age. Use appliances with controls that are easy to read. Push-button interfaces are simple and convenient. The automatic shutdown feature reduces the risk of kitchen accidents.

Seniors with mobility issues may find it difficult and unsafe to reach out for items. Get open-shelf pantry shelves for easier access. You can also place the most frequently used items in the lower or accessible part of the shelf.

There are many ideas to help make your home safe for your senior loved one. Consult a Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii for similar and other considerations.

When you think about home care services, think about Helping Hands Hale. We are just a call away.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
