Help make home safer for a person with Alzheimer’s disease with a room-by-room checklist to alert you to potential hazards and help you record any changes you need to make.

Keep in mind that it may not be necessary to make all the suggested changes and that you will need to re-evaluate home safety periodically as behavior and abilities change.

Use this checklist to look for hazards in the following locations:

  • Entryway
  • Kitchen
  • Bedroom
  • Bathroom
  • Living room
  • Laundry room
  • Garage/shed/basement

Find the checklist on the ADEAR website and share this information with others
