Senior Care Authority (SCA) is a recognized senior placement and eldercare consulting organization with decades of experience and dozens of certified advisors ready to help families and their loved ones. Recently, Marcy Baskin, SCA Vice President of Franchise Support and Training and a certified senior care advisor herself, took some time with a reporter from AARP to share her knowledge and advice when it comes to senior safety at home.
“The bathroom is one of the places in the home where accidents are more likely to occur,” said Marcy. She advised bathroom upgrades like grab bars and add-ons like a shower chair or raised toilet seat, and renovations like a walk-in shower and a wheelchair-friendly sink if possible.
Furthermore, “adequate lighting throughout the home — including in hallways and spaces like the garage— is a key consideration for those aging in place,” Marcy went on to say.
We’re exceptionally proud of the work we do at Senior Care Authority and the hundreds of seniors and families we’ve been able to help along the way. Marcy is just one of many dedicated individuals at SCA who make it their mission to be there for clients when they need us most!
