Keeping Mom and Dad Safe at Home this Winter

‘We live across the country – how can we be sure Mom is OK when she’s home all alone?’

‘I want to spend February and March in our Florida condo, but how will Dad cope with errands and home maintenance if in snowy weather?’

Adult children often worry about their aging parents, but even more so in the throes of winter. Add a dose of guilt at the idea of taking their own vacation, and you have a recipe for one worried grown-up kid!

Winter Safety Tips for Your Parents Pre-planning will help you keep your parents safe this winter.

What can an adult child suggest to their parents to keep them safe at home? Here are some ideas:

Errands and Appointments

Meals and Housekeeping

Socialization

Home Maintenance

Personal Safety

When can these plans begin? Anytime from Labour Day onward, begin investigating options, being sure to include your parents in all decisions.

The smart adult children will set these things up well before they are urgently needed – like in a Toronto snowstorm!

Have a great winter season and be sure all of your family’s generations stay safe and warm!
