    There comes a time for every family when we transition from going to our parent's or grandparent's homes for the holidays to hosting them ourselves. Cleaning, cooking and hosting is a lot of work for our older family members, so it just makes sense to update the tradition. But while it might make sense to host the holidays yourself, have you thought about whether or not your home is age-friendly enough for your older loved ones? First of all, take a look at access. How is the parking at your home? Will your older loved ones be able to easily navigate your front steps? Do you need to tighten those bolts on your handrail? Is your entryway slick? Do you need to clean up slippery leaves? Is there room to get a walker from the door to your dining room table? Sometimes an easy rearrangement of the furniture and stationing someone outside to help seniors navigate your entryway can be enough to make access safer and easier for everyone. Secondly consider seating. While you might love your slouchy couch, it can be challenging for older adults to get in and out of low-sitting furniture and they might not want to ask for help. Could you borrow some sturdy folding chairs from a friend? Could you host everyone in the family room instead of the living room? What’s the best space to keep everyone together, but make sure everyone is comfortable. While we’re on the subject of seating, do you have enough dining room chairs? Do they have non-slip pads on the bottom? Do they need seat cushions? You don’t want to up-end your house for the holidays, but sometimes simple adjustments can make a big difference. Finally, step back and see if you need to make adjustments for safety, especially when it comes to possible trip hazards and handrails. If you are prone to get your foot caught on that shaggy rug in your living room, chances are good that it’s not friendly for older adults or walkers. The same is true for cords – or pets – that you may have stepped over a hundred times. Also, depending on the needs of your individual family members, you might want to consider picking up temporary support rails for your bathroom. These are just a few of the ways you can ensure your home is ready for family members of all ages without a complete redesign of your space or a huge investment in age-safe modifications. Have a great holiday season!
    Love it or hate it, fall is here! As we say farewell to the warmth and fun of summer, it’s time to get excited about falling leaves, sweatshirts, campfires and all things autumn. For you, that might mean packing away the white shoes and digging out your boots, but what does it mean for your home? Here are five ways you can prepare for late fall and winter. Top Down: Fall is a wonderful time to inspect your roof, clean your gutters, check your downspouts and make sure your home is ready for wetter, cooler temperatures, including ice and snow. Although some of this you can do yourself, consider bringing in a company like TruBlue to help. Standing on a ladder while trying to mitigate any gunk you might find is dangerous work. Plus, if a repair needs to be made, we can help. Prepare for the Cold: Colder temperatures always seem to sneak up on us and there’s nothing like trying to get your furnace repaired on the coldest day of the year. Before that cold snap, have your furnace or heating system inspected and, if you use a fireplace, have your chimney cleaned and inspected.This is also a great time to test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace your filters. Keep out the Draft: Sealing your doors and windows is a pretty simple process that can make a big difference when it comes to keeping in the heat – and keeping out the cold. Now is a great time to check – and possibly replace – the weather stripping and caulking around your windows and doors. If you have older windows, fall is a great time to insulate them. Bottom Up: Foundations are especially susceptible to water in the winter because of the way ice expands. If you have cracks in your foundation, fall is a great time to take stock of the situation, even if you can’t make repairs right now. While we’re talking about the bottom of your home, now is also a good time to insulate pipes that might be prone to freezing, shut down your outdoor water access and check for leaks that could become skating rinks in the dead of winter. Safety First: We could go on forever about ways to protect your home from the impending cold, but we’ll close out this blog with a quick reminder about home safety. Winter is prime time for falls, especially outside with the ice. Make sure your handrails are sturdy and accessible and that you have non-slip material right inside your doors. No one wants to come in with snowy shoes just to skid across the entryway. Whether you need help with a few of these projects or you’re ready to take seasonal maintenance (https://trubluehousecare.com/services/seasonal-work) off your list entirely, TruBlue can help.

    We’ve all fallen over what seemed like nothing – a sock on the steps, a puddle on the porch, even our own two feet. But as we get older, those falls are apt to cause more than a sprained ankle or a sore back. In fact, according to the National Council on Aging, one in four adults over the age of 65 falls every year and, of those falls, 20 percent cause serious injuries. To make matters worse, 90 percent of those falls happen at home. Let’s face it, we don’t all heal as quickly as we used to, so preventing those falls is all the more critical as we age. As September is Fall Prevention Awareness Month, we wanted to share four ways you can make your home – or your loved one’s home – safer. Handrails and Grab Bars: This is easily the most obvious way to prevent falls around your home. If you have stairs, even just a couple in the garage, make sure you have sturdy handrails to hold onto, whether it’s for regular use or in case you slip. In the bathroom, have a professional like TruBlue install grab bars in the shower and next to the toilet. It’s not all about pulling yourself up – although that’s nice too. It’s about having something to catch when you need it, especially when you’re surrounded by slippery surfaces. Trip Hazards: Socks. Electrical Cords. Shoes. Pets. Rugs… Our houses are FULL of trip hazards and, especially when you’ve lived in a house for a while, they are easy to miss. It’s time to take a step back and find ways to minimize those hazards. Could you rearrange your lights or install ceiling lights? Can you secure your rug to the floor? Do you need maid services (we can help!)? It might seem obvious, but the smallest things can be the biggest issues when you’re not paying attention. Slippery Surfaces: This one is obvious in the bathroom, but slipping can happen anywhere. Bring in a wet umbrella? Let out your pet after it rained? Get a little messy doing the dishes? Have a few splatters while cooking? Bump the cat bowl? There are a million ways to have a slippery floor, so the best course of action is prevention! Your local TruBlue technician can help you find ways to make those areas less of an issue with non-slip solutions. Rearrange Your Home: Before moving your light switches and lowering your cabinets – both of which are great options for seniors aging in place – take a broader look around your home. Is your furniture arranged in a way that serves you best? Think about things like putting your bed near the light switch so you don’t need to walk across the room in the dark or moving your coffee table so you don’t bump into it for the thousandth time. Sometimes the solutions are easy! If you’re ready to take on some of these projects, consider letting TruBlue Total House Care help you with a Senior Home Safety Assessment.
