Does your loved one shuffle their feet or easily trip over things? To help cut down on trips and falls you can place red tape on all thresholds in the home. The red captures the brain’s attention and forces the eye to look down, helping to prevent trips. You can also outline the edges of steps, coffee tables and doorways with colored (plumber’s) tape to help prevent bumps and bruises.
Do you have certain tricks up your caregiver sleeve that make everyday tasks a bit easier? Share your creative, low-cost, DIY (Do it Yourself) tips, hacks and time savers.
