Decluttering for Your Aging Loved One: Creating a Safe Environment

Are you or a loved one living with dementia feeling overwhelmed by ‘stuff?’ Too much ‘stuff’ can be stressful and dangerous if we cannot safely navigate our home environments. As our loved ones age, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that their homes are safe and supportive environments, especially for individuals experiencing memory loss. Experts Heather Nickerson & Ellen Goodwin, founders of Artifcts, share valuable insights in the field of senior care and home safety.

This webinar focuses on the health benefits of decluttering, and provide proactive tips for decluttering for dementia or other cognitive impairments. Learn about the specific challenges faced by aging individuals and how decluttering can contribute to their safety, comfort and emotional well-being. Discover practical tips and strategies for decluttering your loved one’s living space effectively. From organization techniques to identifying potential hazards, you’ll leave with actionable steps to create a safer home environment.

Whether you’re concerned about mobility issues, fall prevention, or optimizing living spaces for aging in place, our experts are here to provide guidance and support.
