Living alone is a great source of independence, but it can also come with a lot of work. I have a few tips to help you keep yourself on top of things and make your home for senior-safe. 1. Organize – Have a special place for all your essential items. Know where your list of phone numbers is, your wallet, medical cards, appointment cards and medications. Having a set area for each will help keep you organized so no appointments are missed and all medications are taken on time. 2.
