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.
Mother’s day is quickly approaching around the corner. Here at TruBlue we love mothers. Many of our successful business owners are mothers themselves. We believe they deserve the world, or, at the very least, much more than a haphazard bouquet of half wilted flowers, or the remains of a stick mess that’s left over from a well-intentioned breakfast in bed. If you agree with us and are searching for meaningful ideas for the special mom in your life, you’re in the right place. We have come up with a couple of ideas to get your home, or home of a deserving mother in your life, ready in time for their day. 1 Finish the Honey Do List. Chances are the special mother in your life is a great delegator. This means that there’s probably a list of small chores around the house that she’s been giving to someone. This list might include things like hanging the TV on the wall, fixing cabinet doors that have become out of alignment, quieting a squeaky door hinge or more. If there is no list, studies have shown that the average American home has at least 22 small tasks that need completed. Complete this list and we can promise you the extra functionality on the house will enhance her day-to-day life. 2 Redo your Kitchen Cabinets. Most moms spend a lot of time looking at the kitchen. Ensure that what they look at is not only functional but also easy on the eyes. Repainting the cabinet doors, adding kitchen handles, or updating the appliances will all impact the appearance of the kitchen, and even, in some instances, the functionality of the space. 3 Do some Landscaping. Spring is here, and that means that the ground is thawing if you live in a colder climate. This is where we can go above and beyond last minute grocery store bouquet. Spend some time outside and plant some flowers yourself. Weed the flowerbeds, lay down new mulch, and plant something beautiful. When planted correctly and taken care of, the flowers should bloom for years of enjoyment, rather than wilting within the month. Mowing the grass while you’re at it will only make the flowerbeds stand out even more. 4 Baby/Pet Proof the House. For the new mothers or mothers of young children, or new pets, consider if baby proofing the place would be a good use of resources. Installing strong gates can keep both pets and curious toddlers alike out of places that they shouldn’t get to go. Look at the kitchen. Set up soft-close cabinets, or put childproof locks so that little fingers and paws can’t get smashed between the cabinet and the door. Put some plug covers over open sockets, and protect little heads from sharp furniture corners by putting up corner protectors. If you need help setting up baby cameras or other monitoring devices your local TruBlue can assist you there. 5 Create a Dedicated Home Office or Mom Only Space in the House. Move over Man Cave, it’s time for a dedicated mother zone. Moms are not stay at home wives anymore. Many of them work from home, run side businesses and hustles, or donate their time to various volunteer activities. Give them a dedicated space to work or relax in. This mother’s day consider sprucing up this room. Invest in some wall decor or furniture to fill the space and make it both beautiful and functional. Or look at what the office needs, a new printer, a new computer monitor, better lighting, and invest in some new technology for the space. Mom’s deserve so much, and this mother's day give them something special to make their house more beautiful and functional. Give them something that lasts for months. If you need help to complete these tasks contact your local TruBlue and we will be happy to help set up the perfect mother’s day surprise.
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.
