Assisted Living and Senior Safety

Over 19 million American citizens care for an adult over 75, and safety is a primary concern for all of them. Seniors and senior caregivers need to be especially vigilant both online and offline. Safety for seniors has two main aspects–protection from others who would take advantage of them, and protection from accidents that happen all by themselves. Safety around the house, home, or assisted living facility is easy to improve with just a few simple steps. And when it comes to online safety, just knowing what scams are out there, so you won’t be fooled, is 99% of the battle.

Here are some of the best resources we know of on senior safety.
