As we age, we tend to become, as a good friend of mine likes to put it, “more philosophical.” We don’t let things get to us like they used to. Experience has taught us how to handle tough times. And we don’t want to whine or be a nuisance, either. We like to be positive, have fun, and focus on the good and simple things in our lives. Like large print books, LayZBoys, big screen TV’s, good friends, meatloaf, and liver and onions.
But we know, and our adult children know, that we are far more likely to fall and not be able to get up, possibly breaking a bone or even a hip. The start of dementia can increase our chances of wandering and getting lost, which, in itself, can be very dangerous, leading to being robbed, bullied, or even killed. And forgetting to take our medicine, panicking, being abused by other Seniors with dementia or our caregivers or children, are all more likely as we get older.
It’s not all fun getting old, as we know, but we need to protect ourselves and be careful. Our adult children are often sandwiched between caring about us and their own kids, too.
Our motto at IPS Safety Inc. is “Certainty in a Sea of Insecurity.” We provide proven products that are simple to use and ideal for Seniors (and our grandchildren, by the way) and that can add to our peace of mind as well as the peace of mind of our adult children. Perhaps we can help your spouse or a friend. Either way, visit our website here for more information.
