Caregiving for Parkinson’s Disease – Guide & Checklist

Making Your Living Space Safe

People with Parkinson’s disease may have some mobility problems, especially when the condition progresses. This makes moving around the house can be a bit harder. Below are some simple changes that caregivers can make to ensure a safe living space:

– Remove anything that may be tripped over easily on the floor, such as electrical cords

– Make sure the hallways and other paths in the house are clear

– Put anti-slip mats and install grab bars in the tub

– Keep personal stuff within easy reach so that people with Parkinson’s disease do not fall or slip when trying to get them

– If the affected people use a wheelchair, consider installing ramps [3]
