10 holiday gift ideas that keep seniors safe in the homeChristmas BILD
As my parents have been getting older and they’ve been fixing up their “empty nest,” it’s been great to find gifts that they have really liked, and that are helping to keep them safe at home.  Two and a half years ago I looked at my parent’s back stairway which didn’t have any stairs and told my mom, you guys really should have a railing put up back there.  My dad’s answer of course was “we don’t need that.”  Three months later he was going into urgent care to have his hip checked out in the Emergency Room because he slipped and fell on the icy stairs.  Since then they’ve been actually excited and have added a number of the upgrades listed below.  Click on the title’s below to learn more about the options available:
