5 Steps for a Safer Fall Season for Seniors

We love fall. The leaves turn to beautiful colors, the air is crisp and it’s the perfect excuse to eat homemade apple pie. We only wish it could stick around for just a little bit longer and not taunt us with the impending wet and cold weather. As the temperature cools, please make sure that your loved ones stay warm, safe and healthy. Here are five safety tips for the fall season:

  1. Check around the furnace before turning on the heat for the first time.
  2. If you walk outside, especially around dusk, dress in light-colored clothing to help drivers see you.
  3. Change batteries when you “fall back” for daylight savings time.
  4. Know your fire escape plan before the weather gets too cold.
  5. Use space heaters safely and set timers on them to ensure they are not left on.
