As our loved ones age, their safety becomes a top-of-the-mind concern. Should they still be driving? Are they able to handle a snow storm or a power outage? What if they fall and no one is there to hear or help?
Over the past few years, we’ve written many blog posts about how to ensure that your aging loved one lives in a safe, secure environment. Now we’ve compiled the best of those posts into a free eBook, For Safety’s Sake: How to Reduce the Risk of Accident or Injury for your Aging Loved One.
