According to A Place For Mom, there are some simple areas to focus on to make your home safer for your elderly parent, like:
1.    Let the light in-Install motion sensor lighting throughout their home where extra light is needed.
2.    Easy access to doors and window for seniors with arthritis-A lever style door handle may be easier to use than a round one.
3.    Restrict access to doors, windows and dangerous zone for seniors with dementia-child-locks and other child proofing products work well for this purpose.
4.    Assist with mobility- Remove tripping hazards like rugs (and if you have small children, keep the ground as toy-free as possible or establish a senior-free toy zone.)
5.    Make it easy to call for help-Consider using a call-assist service or personal emergency response system like Life Alert that your parent can wear around their neck or wrist and push a button should they need help.
6.    Use at-home safety devices- There are a number of different products out there designed to keep seniors safe like Pocketfinder GPS, GrandCare Systems, Impactactive Hip Protectors, etc.
