How to Make the Most Out of Living Independently After Retirement

Published April 9, 2019 |

Not many senior citizens want to move out of their own home after retirement. After all, home is where the heart is. Fortunately, there are ways you can make sure you or your loved ones stay safe without having to move out of the home. Independent living is a more viable option than ever for seniors because they have an abundance of choices to pick from regarding their physical health needs. At Mobility123, we install and repair stairlifts and other types of equipment in Philadelphia, PA, and the surrounding areas, to help with that. Here’s how you can make the most out of living independently after retirement:

Identify Your Needs

To properly identify the level of assisted care that you or your loved one will need, start by taking a pen and paper and writing down any illnesses or conditions that you have. For example, a senior who is experiencing mild to moderate dementia symptoms will require vastly different in-home care services from seniors who are wheelchair-bound. Also, note the specific tasks that you think you’ll need help with.

Choose the Type and Frequency of In-Home Care You’ll Need

After you’ve identified your needs by examining your individual health conditions and the tasks you will need help with, choose the type of in-home assistive care you’ll require as well as how often you’ll need it. If you don’t have a family member who’s able to help you in your daily life, or if you need attentive care, you may want to choose a home-health aide or a personal care attendant.

Make Any Necessary Safety Modifications to Your Home

Here’s where we come in at Mobility123! We provide all types of independent living solutions, including but not limited to stairlifts, homelifts, and elevators for homes in NJ. These will be installed by our factory certified professionals, depending on your specific needs. We can also customize what you choose to meet your needs and match your personal tastes.

With these tips, you can be living independently in your own home for years to come. Learn more about how we can make home mobility easier for you or a loved one by giving us a call at 800-603-0830.
