Home-based elderly care, safety is the top priority, and the primary issue of home-based safety for the elderly is preventing falls. Among them, installing handrails is a very effective preventive measure.
① If there are no stable grasping and supporting objects such as sofas and short cabinets around the indoor long walkway, there may be unsafe factors for the elderly when walking. If the long walkway is not against the wall, it can be walked with the help of five legged crutches, walking aids, etc. depending on the situation.
② If leaning against the wall, horizontal handrails can be installed along the wall, and the height of the handrails is usually 80 centimeters. The installation of horizontal handrails should be continuous, and vertical handrails should be installed at the doors where elderly people need to enter.
③ Handrails should also be installed on the walls around indoor steps and height differences to reduce joint stress and improve the safety of walking up and down.
④ Circular handrail: A circular handrail is easier to grasp. If an elderly person tends to slip or fall, this handrail is easier to grasp, making it easier for the elderly to grasp during movement and avoiding danger.
⑤ Wooden armrest: When choosing the material of the armrest, it is important to coordinate with the furniture environment, create a warm atmosphere, avoid making it too cold or hard, and do not give the elderly the illusion of being a patient. We commonly use wooden handrails, which look very warm and feel good, making them suitable for elderly people to choose from; There are also nylon armrests with imitation wood grain, which are cheaper and have antibacterial and fireproof effects.
