Home Safety Checklists for National Safety Month

Are you caring for a loved one with dementia in your home or trying to keep someone with early dementia safe in their own home as long as possible?  Eliminating potential safety risks can be a daunting task for caregivers.

In honor of June being both National Safety Month and Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, here are some links to helpful safety checklists for those living at home with dementia:
