It’s getting warmer and starting to feel like summertime. When the weather gets nicer we know that more people spend their days outside enjoying nature. Although spring and summer are beautiful, there are some inherent dangers to the outdoors that we have to remember, especially as we age. We’ve put together a list of 5 outdoor safety tips and ticks for the aging adventurer in your life. 1 Decluttering your Sheds and Garages. Decluttering your space is extremely important when trying to prevent many issues, such as cleanliness and tripping hazards. Decluttering can also help prevent the masking of potential critter and bug infestations. It can also reduce the amount of dust that builds up, for cleaner air aiding with allergies. Garages and sheds are great for storage, but if it becomes cluttered, disorganized, or if it’s bursting at the seams, the space no longer is safe and now poses a risk for items falling down and becoming tripping hazards, and making your items unusable because they’re too hard to access. 2 Proper Lighting. As we age, our eyesight deteriorates rapidly, which makes having proper lighting on both the inside and outside of the house extremely necessary. Making sure that your home is properly lit on the outside can help prevent tripping when walking over unstable ground and terrain. There are many different types of lights that you can use on the exterior of your home, but some of the best ones to use are motion sensor lights, path lights, and stair lights, all of which can help make the exterior of your home the best and safest it can be. Some lights are even solar powered so you’ll never have to worry about changing a battery or running electricity from your house to the lights. 3 Outdoor Shade Cover. One of the best things for people of all ages to do for their health is to sit outside and get some fresh air, however as we grow older there are some increased risks for doing so. As we age, we become more susceptible to contracting skin cancer from the sun's harmful UV rays. A good way to enjoy the outdoors while also staying safe from the dangerous UV is to invest in a shade cover. A fabric shade cover can block up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, along with cooling your patio by up to 20 degrees. There are many other types of covers that can protect your skin from the sun including pergolas, umbrellas, awnings, and canopies. Shade covers can help you get that freedom of enjoying the outdoors again, without putting you at risk for skin cancer. 4 SHS Monitoring Technology. One new feature offered by Seniors Home Services is their Remote Care Monitoring technology. Their Remote Care Monitoring system uses motion detectors, sensors, and AI to detect unusual behaviors in the residents home, without invasive cameras. Behaviors such as inactivity, open doors late at night, and the stove or water being on for too long are all detected through their sensors. All these different sensors paired with the AI software can help notify technicians of potentially hazardous situations. The system helps reduce the risk of falls and allows for quick responses to falls should they happen. This system also includes a necklace that has a button on it in case you run into trouble while outside of your house. 5 Enhance your Outdoor Mobility. Mobility is important for everyone, but its importance grows as you age. Ensuring that you’re able to move freely around your home and yard is an essential part to being able to Age-in-Place. If you utilize mobility devices, such as walkers, canes, or scooters, getting an outdoor ramp and widening your entrance way is extremely important to get around comfortably. Not only is being comfortable extremely important, but the safety that these ramps provide is extremely important for everyone using them. Ramps provide that extra mobility for people who need it the most. TruBlue offers services such as ramp installations and doorway widening, which can help make mobility much safer. To help with clutter, we have our maid service, which allows for customizable options as far as scheduling and what work you need done. Installation of Outdoor Shade Covers can also be done by our TruBlue Tru-Pro home technicians. TruBlue technicians can also install external motion detectable lights that can help make sure you get where you need to be in the dark. Lastly, since TruBlue is partnered with Senior Home Services we can help get the Remote Care Monitoring system up and running.
Studies have shown that the typical homeowner has a to-do-list that they keep putting off for various reasons. If you’ve been putting off home maintenance, or small improvement projects because you didn’t have the money ready to invest, now might be the best time of the year to check everything off of your list. It’s currently the tail end of tax season, and many of us are starting to dream about how we’ll use our tax returns. Last year, in 2021, 74% of tax filers received a refund back from the IRS. The average refund hovered around $3,000. From 2021 we know that 13% of the US population who received a refund spent it on home improvement projects. This number should be higher for 2022. Many of us have adjusted to working from home, and as a result spend the majority of their day inside their house. By investing your tax return into completing your do-lists items and tasks, you can make the place that you spend most of your time more inviting. We have three ideas to get you started with spending your tax return. Clean out your dryer vent. We’re already cleaning the lint trap between every load we throw into the dryer, but how often do we clean the vent itself? Probably not very often. Many times you’ll have to unplug the machine from the wall and get a specialty attachment for your drill to clean inside the pipe. Staying on top of cleaning the dryer vent will help prevent fires, in fact, dryers and washing machines cause almost 16,000 fires each year. Install shelving in your house. If your house is starting to feel small or unorganized, take a look at the vertical space in your house. Adding shelves onto your wall in the office can give you a place to store papers and books that might have previously been housed on your deskspace. In the garage consider high shelves for the stuff that you might not need to access 24/7. This will help clear the walkways and get stuff off of the floor. Spend some time making your outdoor space feel like an extra room. Consider landscaping, making a patio, or cleaning off the old deck. Sometimes all you need is a good power wash, and don’t forget to clean the furniture too. As the weather warms up and before the bugs are out in full swing, enjoying the rest of spring is a great way to relax and make the most of your property. TruBlue can help you with your general handyman and to-do-list items around the house, find your local store and schedule your service today.
For older adults considering their options and family members looking to do the best for their aging loved ones, there’s one thing many people agree on: the importance of living at home for as long as it’s the safest, healthiest thing to do. This is especially true now that COVID-19 has kept so many from seeing their loved ones who were (and, in some cases, still are) locked inside nursing homes and assisted living facilities. From enjoying the comforts of home to living with the dignity of being more self-sufficient to saving money on housing costs, Aging in Place has a slew of benefits. But while it’s relatively easy to find the right caregiver for your individual situation, that’s only half of the equation. The house itself has to be equipped for both the current needs and the future needs of the person living at home. In some cases that means lowering light switches or building ramps, but in other cases that means having someone regularly scheduled to help with lawn care, handyman repairs, cleaning services and more. Living at home doesn’t do much good if your house is falling down around you. Jennifer Corder, a TruBlue franchisee with a background as a Director of Client Care for an in-home care company, said she has seen this exact issue time and time again. “I saw such a big need for these kinds of services when I was working in the in-home care industry, and if something like TruBlue had existed in the community I served, I would have been referring these services all the time. The house itself is such an important part of successfully aging in place safely and comfortably. By working with TruBlue, loved ones can have the peace of mind knowing that the seniors in their lives are living in safe, well-maintained homes,” she said. That’s where TruBlue Total House Care comes in. TruBlue is a national franchise that provides a helping hand around the house – inside and out. TruBlue’s services include tackling to-do list chores, handyman services, house cleaning, maintenance, yard work, senior home modifications and seasonal projects, all handled by a dedicated House Care Manager, either individually or through monthly or quarterly programs. TruBlue’s one-call-does-it-all approach to home care services also means that seniors and loved ones can call one trusted company to take care of the entire home. TruBlue also recently partnered with Age Safe® America in order to provide certified home safety assessments. So, before you schedule the tour of that facility down the street, take some time to consider whether hiring a caregiver and bringing in a House Care Manager might be a better fit.
