Name:​​ A Safe Environment Plan​​ ​​ 

SKU: CSEGOTPT

Solution Plan:​​ 

  • Clear walkway, clear paths to the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and other rooms where an individual resides

  • Remove or​​ secure​​ carpets.​​ 

  • Install handrails and ramps​​ as needed​​ 

  • Add assistive devices in the bathroom

  • Walking aid​​ as needed​​ 

  • Wear flat, wide-toed shoes.

Raise thresholds, steps or stairs. Install a rail or handle on the wall where the individual steps up or over. Install railings on both sides of the stairs, extending beyond the last step in either direction. This gives additional support while climbing up and down the stairs and including your approach to the stairs.​​ 

If a walker is being used consider keeping one upstairs and one downstairs, rather than bringing one up and down.

Additional Solutions:​​ 

  • Address critical hazards such as hot water temperature and falling object in shower area​​ 

  • Fix slipping, tripping, and balance hazards throughout the home​​ 

  • Remove physical barriers like rough floor transitions and blocked walkways​​ 

  • Adjust the kitchen and pantry for easy food preparation and eating​​ 

  • Simplify bedding the sleeping area​​ 

  • Ensure the bathroom is usable with limited mobility and safe when wet​​ 

  • Arrange help with housework, grocery shopping, and traveling to appointments​​ 

  • Create a list of emergency contacts and post it prominently in the home for easy reference​​ 

  • Reassess the home setup and reevaluate the individuals plan periodically, to allow for setbacks and progress.
