The difficulty in movement faced by Parkinson’s patients can be a danger in the home. Some simple changes can make all the difference in keeping loved ones safe. Furniture should be arranged in a manner that allows a wide area for movement. Add handrails to staircases and remove rugs to prevent falls. In the kitchen, place cooking utensils and meal ingredients in locations where patients can sit to work. Replace manual tools like can openers with easy-to-use electric ones. In the bathroom, install a shower chair, grip bars and a non-slip mat to the tub area.
