Accessible Homes With Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy Singapore
For accessible homes: If you have an ageing parent(s), regardless if
they're staying with you on they're living on their own, it's best to
engage an occupational therapy or physiotherapy specialist to do a
walkthrough assessment of your/their accessible homes to identify and
highlight possible problem areas that are high risk to causing injuries
such as falls. In this article we will look at accessible homes where
they stay in.
Accessibility refers to ease of access in terms of convenience, safety and comfort.
Accessible Area Outside Of Homes
the areas outside of homes are more well lit in the day time, but take
note that it doesn't become too bright/hot as that can cause fainting
episodes due to dehydration or overexposure to sunlight. If they enjoy
gardening, do install an extendible veranda for them to be protected
from the heat and brightness, but allow winds to blow in. Do install
garden chairs and places chairs in strategic places within the compound
and garden areas, where they can rest whenever they're tired. Do ensure
that they wear adequate footwear that will protect their feet from sharp
objects or toxic/natural poisons. If you park your car in the compound,
try to ensure that it doesn't leak oil, as that will cause the grounds
to be slippery.
Accessible Homes Inside
the house, it'd be best for the home to be well lit, be it in the day
time or night time. The switches for the lights should be easily
accessible and easy to flip. If the finishing of the floor is polished,
they should also wear adequate footwear to prevent slippage, and if you
mop/polish the floor, they should not be walking on it until the floor
is dry. Minimize any clutter in the house, and remove flimsy and loose
furniture such as tall tables or low stools and loose rugs that can be
easily tripped over. Make sure that you have firm and heavy chairs with
arm rests placed strategically all over the home for them to rest
whenever they're tired, and if allowed, install grab bars along walkways
and corridors as well as night lights.
If you have
stairs in the house, they should be accompanied with grab bars and
railings on either sides, and bright tape should be marked at each step
edge to highlight the change of depth. If they are more prone to falls,
it'd be advised for them to stay on the lower, level ground, to minimize
going up and down stairs. If you have carpets installed, or you prefer
carpets in your home, make sure it's a low-grain carpets, about 1 cm
tall, and no taller than 2 cm as the higher the carpet grains and
material, the more unstable it is for those who walk on it.
are some general advise for you, but if you are cautious and are
concerned about having injuries or falls in the house, it will be best
if you engage your local physiotherapy and occupational therapy group
(if you don't know anyone, check with your family physician; if you're
in Singapore, we'll be more than happy to help you) to both assess your
family member and prescribe a physiotherapy program; as well as to
assess the accessibility of bathrooms.
