Autumn is on it's way and it’s a reminder that this summer has been all too short. This means that it’s time to start preparing for the colder weather, and that goes double for elderly people living alone or in other home arrangements.
The beginning of autumn brings a spike in season-related falls and illnesses as the changing weather sets in. When the temperature drops, we tend to stay indoors more, but still spend a lot of time outdoors during the early months.
This requires twice the preparation, which can be difficult for elderly people that live on their own and have to maintain property. Still, fall can be a really fun and beautiful time of year for everyone, the key is to take these steps to get ready.
