4 essential spring cleaning tips

  

Warmer days, sunny skies and blooming flowers are sure signs of a welcome change in seasons. Before you enjoy time outdoors, why not spruce up inside? Clearing out clutter is more than just tidying up your home — it also creates a safer environment that helps to reduce stress and prevent unexpected falls and accidents.

1

Put away, or secure, tripping hazards such as loose rugs or electrical cords.

2

Store clothing, dishes and food where they’ll be easy to reach.

3

Light up your home with night lights.

4

Place a lamp within reach of your bed for middle-of-the-night needs.

If you are worried about falling or if you recently had a fall, consider making an appointment with your doctor to talk about your concerns and potential care options. You can also call Sharp Senior Resource Centers at 1-619-740-4214 to learn about fall prevention classes or to set up a resource consultation.
