Pressure of work normally results in a fast tempo in life. When the body has been tuned to this fast tempo for decades, it is very difficult for a retired person to slow down even when moving around in his or her own home. Home accidents often occur under such circumstances.
Therefore, the home environment should be maintained in such a way as to prevent accidents. For instance, living space should be free of clutter, well-lit and kept dry, etc. See Home Safety Tips and Home Safety Videos for details.
In ensuring a safe living environment, it is also necessary to pay attention to ones' daily Living Habits.
Keeping pipes and drains as well as home appliances under good condition is already a safety factor. But long years of usage will cause wear and tear and repairing works would be necessary. For electricity works, we should engage qualified persons to carry out the repair work rather than doing it ourselves. Our dedicated page on House Repairs should be of help to you.
